InstructionsChop your broccoli into very small pieces and saute it with olive oil and garlic for a few minutes. Once it is done sauteing add parmesan cheese to the pan and allow it to slightly melt with the broccoli, you can add some Garlic Romano Wing Shake at this point. Remove it from the heat source, let it cool and then place in a bowl with the mozzarella cheese and set aside. This will be our stuffing.
In a separate bowl mix the juice of one lemon with 1/4 cup of white wine, in a bowl right next to that pour some of your Panko Bread Crumbs and set both bowls aside.
Slice your chicken breast in half lengthwise and then pound it with a mallet until it is thin enough to be rolled. Take your Broccoli and cheese mix and place it in the middle of the flattened chicken breast. Grab the chicken breast from one end and begin to roll it up, keeping as much of the broccoli and cheese inside as possible.
Dip the rolled up chicken breast into the lemon and wine mix and then into the breadcrumbs making sure you are coating all sides. Place on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with a non-stick spray.
Pre-Heat Oven to 450°F and bake chicken until internal temperature reaches 165°, about 10-15 minutes. If desired, remove chicken at 160° sprinkle more Mozzarella on top and allow it to melt while chicken cooks to 165°. Remove from oven and serve hot!

I believe the recommended curing time is 12 hours but can I go less than that? I was expecting my order to be here tonight and it won’t be here till tomorrow morning now.
I was going to mix up my batch of jerky tonight but will have to do it tomorrow on my lunch break. Just wondering if tomorrow evening would be long enough to let the meat cure.
Your recipe calls for 1. Sure Cure, 2. Sure Gel Meat Binder, and 3. Smoked Meat Stabilizer. I have all but the Sure Gel Meat Binder. Can I get by without using this? Second question- Is Excalibur’s Cure Excellerator the same as Sure Cure?
@andyman Great question, Carrot Fiber holds up to 26 times its weight in water, and while the 80 oz is still well inside that I have never done that before. I max out (even with Carrot Fiber) at 64 oz which is 2 qts. My only fear with doing 80 is that it might take a lot longer to cook as it will have more water content that will be trying to evaporate. Most of that water should be bound up in the carrot fiber though so it wouldn’t really be available to be cooked out. Hmmm, my recommendation, to be safe is to stick with 64 oz of water.
Now, as to should you add more seasoning, some people will taste the difference if you did not add additional seasonings and some (most) will not. Your water and your seasoning is technically part of your meat block (anyone who is reading this who doesn’t consider this don’t worry!) so adjusting your meat block to include your water is sometimes done. If you do decide to add more spices or seasonings I would add aromatics and things like Rosemary and Basil, don’t add more salt as that is formulated specifically for the meat block.
Hope this helps and if you do decide to go with 80 oz of water then I would be very interested in the results!
i use denuded round. higher cost, less waste, cleaner eating
@jonathon I enjoyed this line of questions and comments, it made me think. Here is my related question: Assume I use 25 lbs. of meat to make summer sausage and add one package, 4 oz., of Carrot Fiber and 80 oz. of water. The ratio is 20 times the weight of water to the weight of CF. In other words, I am adding 5 lbs. 4 oz. of water/CF paste to my meat dough. Should I adjust the amount of salt and spices, I add to the dough? I am concerned that the flavor will be weaker if I don’t add spices for the new total, 30 lbs. curious as to what y’all thinking.
