Hi, I’m Chef Ted, I’m in the Rada Cutlery kitchen, and today I’m going to show you how to make a Pepperjack Chicken Roll. We’re going to sauté some asparagus in a pan. We’ll add a stick of butter. I’m going to take my Rada Chef Knife and cut a sweet onion. I like to cut them in half and adjust the angle of my knife with the angle of the onion.
Add some colorful peppers. We’ve got yellow, red, and green. I like using the Peeling Paring Knife to go through and get the white membrane out. It adds a little bit of color to it. I’m going to cut these as well. Right now the asparagus and onion are cooking in the butter and olive oil, which will make a bit of a sauce for the chicken. I also use the Rada Cook’s Knife, which is really handy and comfortable to use. These are things you can get from fundraisers as well. If you have a group that needs fundraising done, Rada has a great program that pays out as well as any I’ve ever seen, paying at 40 percent.
I’m going to stir the peppers around with the Rada Spatula. Add some sugar. Now I’m going to open up some chicken breast. A chicken breast like this will serve 2 or 3 people, depending on how you fillet it. I’m going to use the Rada Fillet Knife. This knife just walks right through the chicken. I like to take it on the thin side and cut it towards the thick side and lay it open like a book. Don’t cut all the way through, just enough to open it.
I’m going to take some thin slices of ham and basically make a cartridge to load into the chicken breast. You’re going to try and make it around whatever size the chicken breast is.
I’m going to bring over the sautéed veggies, and try to shake off at least a little bit of the butter and oil. Now we’re going to use the Rada Cheese Knife. I’m going to cut some Pepperjack Cheese. I like stuff a little spicier. If you don’t like it that spicy you can get a milder cheese.
We’re going to roll these back up here. Then I’m going to continue rolling the chicken breast up. Try to keep everything inside as much as possible. Put a little season salt, garlic, or pepper, whatever you want to use, and put some on top. We’re going to pick these up carefully and place them into the Rada Rectangular Baker stoneware. Now I’m going to pour the juice from the sautéed vegetables we reserved over the chicken rolls. This is going to be part of the base of the sauce.
Now we put in the leftovers from the vegetables and add just a little bit of white wine. A little more season salt. Now we’re going to put them in the oven at 350 degrees until they reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
We’re using large chicken breasts, so it took a solid 45 minutes in the oven. About 30 minutes in I opened the oven up and topped the chicken with more slices of pepper jack on it. For plating I’m going to put some veggies on the platter first. Then I wait and let the chicken rolls rest for a bit before slicing them. The chicken comes directly out of the Rada stoneware with nothing stuck on the bottom whatsoever. We’ve got it sliced, now I’m going to garnish it with a bit of asparagus. And there you have the Pepperjack Chicken Roll!
