Finally made a good piece of chicken breast on the EGG

I have made spatchcock chicken a few times and they always come out great. However I have never mastered the plain flat chicken breast.

Well that changed.

I took two breasts about 1/2 inch thick. Pressed a piece of fresh garlic and split across the two breasts. Put some provolone cheese slices on top followed by some roasted red peppers and a sprinkle of shredded mozzarella cheese. I rolled them up and tied. Cooked raised direct for ~20 minutes (checking every 5 min at the end with the thermapen to get the center to 155. When the breasts reached 140 I placed a small piece of Fresh mozzerella on top of each one and finished cooking.

Very good. Will add spinach next time.

    Glad you figured something out that you like, I know you weren't happy that you couldn't make it to your liking. Nicely done.

    Awesome. No food looks better in photo than melted cheese....
  • way to go rob . Kalyn's kitchen is a great resource for low carb eaters. I love this recipe and tons of other low carb recipes she does. The mustard tarragon sauce is loaded with flavor and super easy to make. The whole site is really good for what you are doing. This is normally done in a pan and can be cooked in minutes on busy nights when you are too tired to fire up the egg.Give it a try, I think you'll enjoy it. The sauce is awesome on pork tenderloin/chops as well so interchange at your liking.

    Gee, I never would have thought of rolling cheese up in a chicken breast and topping it with cheese? Looks fantastic!

    This is a classic french dish(chicken tarragon) and is absolutely delicious and easy to make. I normally do a whole chicken but breasts would be even faster. Takes 30 minutes for me; this includes breaking down the carcass.

    You didn't have chicken breast - you had cheese.

    Spinach would be a nice addition to the mix.
    I knew all the rules, but the rules did not know me.
