When I was a child I didn't eat anything. Nothing, nothing, nothing at all.

I was a member of that category of enervating children able to chew food for ages rather than give you satisfaction.

Just a few things were to my taste, exactly four : thin soup with cream cheese, boiled spinach with oil and lemon, roasted chicken breast with potatoes purèe.
But, sometimes,  I let myself be fascinated by exotic compositions like the superfamous "fled fowls".
"Are them true fowls, grandma? They don't look like. Awww, they are not? It's bettere if they are not, i was already  impressed.... but.... are they good?"

And I fell in the cage.....discovering that the misterious dish was also delicious. Maybe this trend of giving strange names to food  thanks his birth to those indolent malnurished children.
Anyway..... everybody likes rolls. They are gorgeous, superlicious, and you can do them in a billion versions.....
Everybody is happy with rolls!
Now that I'm an adult I don't eat just 4 things anymore...but "fled fowls" are a must and...You do them in a minute so...why not?


difficulty: easy
time: 20 minutes
for 4 persons

I need:
-400 grams of chicken breast  in slices (4 slices)
-50 grams of ham
-12  sage leaves
-6 cheese slices (cheddar or fontina or emmenthaler)
-salt and pepper
-2 spoons of olive oil
-half glass of milk

-kitchen knife and cutting board
-a 26 cm diamenter pan
-a meat pestle 

First of all beat the chicken with the meat pestle until it's flat. Cut each slice in three parts and fill each part with ham, half slice of cheese and a sage leaf.
Roll the slices and fix them with a toothpick. Heat the pan with the oil and when it's hot put inside the rolls, cook them for 3 minutes high flame, turn them, put pepper and then the milk. After 2 minutes lower the flame and cook other 5 minutes covered. you will notice that the melted cheese has done a sauce mixing up with the milk. Stop cooking, put half small spoon of salt, mix and serve....

THAT'S NOT FAIR!!!!!!!!!!

Tha's not fair! It's easy, when you have a 10 years old boy , getting back in those elementary school moods and starting speaking like a's unfair, i didn't do it on pourpose.... with my 8 months old girlie around, if I start soiling please tell me somethin'.
Anyway, "that's not fair " is the first thought that comes to my mind when I see (and eat) what I cook and recall  that I'm on a diet and above all that  these dishes fit perfectly in my diet's parameters, and that I'm losing weight! savoury! So...that's not fair! ahahahahhaah!
So, this one is so good and nice to see, here at home everybody loved it so.... why not?
