In Spain these rolls are known as “flamenquines”. A “flamenquín” is a typical dish from Cordoba, in the south of Spain. Usually it consists in breaded pieces of pork loin filled with slices of Serrano ham (prosciutto). But these ones are a little different, they combine chicken, prosciutto and avocado.
Ingredients 4 people
8 chicken breast fillets, they must be large enough to be wrapped
Slices of prosciutto
Slices of cheese
1 large ripe avocado
Salt and pepper to taste
A tablespoon of lemon juice
Bread crumbs and 1 beaten egg
Olive oil for frying
First all mash in a bowl the avocado to make a paste, season with salt, pepper and ground cumin to taste. Add one tablespoon of lemon juice to stop avocado turning brown and set aside.
Flatten breast fillets with a meat mallet. Season with salt and pepper on both sides.
Extend over each fillet a little of avocado paste, a slice of cheese and a slice of prosciutto.
Fold and roll up. Wrap in plastic film and put in the fridge for an hour.
Remove from fridge. Dip each roll in the beaten egg first then in bread crumbs. Twice.
Fry at moderate heat in a large frying pan with a generous amount of olive oil, constantly flipping to maintain uniform cooking, until they are golden brown.
When they are done remove from frying pan and place in a dish with kitchen paper towels to drain the excess oil.
Serve immediately with a salad garnish and enjoy!
