The Eatalian’s Pollo Involtini

One of our favourite neighbourhood spots on the bustling 11th Street in Parkmore is the Eatalian. Their delicious Italian fare always entices us back for more. Fabio, the owner, shared with us the recipe of one of his favourite dishes on the menu…


1 skinless, boneless, flattened chicken breast

15g of Parma ham thinly sliced

30g brown mushrooms sautéed and chopped

a pinch of fresh chopped mixed herbs

20g grated mozzarella cheese

all-purpose flour to dust

1 egg beaten

bread crumbs to cover the chicken

cooking oil to fry



Prepare the flattened chicken breast on a flat surface/board. Line the Parma ham slices on the flatted chicken breast. Top with the chopped sautéed mushrooms and cheese. Roll to form a sausage shape sealing the fillings with the chicken. Season the rolled chicken breast with salt and pepper then dust with flour. Cover the rolled chicken with the beaten egg, and then dip in the bread crumbs. In preheated cooking oil, fry the crumbed chicken roll till golden brown. Finish in a preheated oven to get the cheese melted and to get it perfectly cooked and still moist.


For the sauce:


60 ml fresh cream

5g butter

10g grana podano

a pinch of salt and pepper



Reduce the cream with butter then add the grana podano. Add salt and pepper.

To serve accompany with a salad or roast vegetables of your choice.
