Tonight we celebrated Chinese New Year in our home, our family loves to explore other cultures and celebrations.
According to the Chinese Zodiac, the Dragon is a creature of myth, legend and much power. Today, it signifies success and happiness.
We invited some friends over and researched crafts and I found a recipe on the VH Sauce Facebook Page.
The children colored pages I printed off the internet, made lanterns, created masks and held a wonderful parade for us.
- 4 chicken breasts, skinless and boneless
- ½ cup (125 mL) plain goat cheese (cream cheese can also be used)
- 2 cups (500 mL) frozen broccoli florets
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) vegetable oil
- 1 bottle VH® Sweet & Sour Sauce
Place 1 chicken breast between 2 large pieces of plastic wrap, carefully pound chicken breast with the flat side of a meat tenderizer or rolling pin. Flatten breast to a thickness of ½ com (1/4 inch), taking care not to tear the chicken. Repeat with remaining chicken breasts.
Place broccoli in a small glass and add just enough water to cover the florets, microwave for 4 minutes. Drain and chop finely. Stir warm broccoli into goat cheese until well combined.
Place ¼ of the cheese mixture at the base of the first piece of chicken, carefully roll the meat over the cheese, tucking in the sides to enclose the cheese. Use 2-3 toothpicks to secure. Repeat with remaining 3 breasts.
Believe me when I tell you it’s not easy to roll the chicken, just make sure you have it 1/4″ thick.
In a large sauté pan heat oil over medium-high, brown chicken on all sides, about 7 minutes.
Add VH® Sweet & Sour Sauce to the pan along with ¼ cup (60 mL) water. Cover and simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 12 minutes.
Slice chicken and serve with sauce poured over top.
