Prosciutto and pate fill these chicken rolls, fried in a pan and then baked until perfection. Perfect with a classic French sauce such as au jus. Sound hard, but are really very simple and worth it!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Cut pate into 12 rectangles, and place onto a plate lined with plastic wrap. Place into the freezer. Combine chicken thighs and Worcestershire sauce in a bowl. Seal with plastic wrap, and place in refrigerator to marinate for 1 hour.

  • Gently fry the prosciutto in a large, nonstick skillet over medium heat until crispy. Drain, cool and crumble into a bowl. Season with garlic powder to taste; set aside.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Remove chicken thighs from the marinade and pat dry with paper towels. Discard marinade. Lay the chicken thighs out flat on a clean work surface. Season with salt and pepper, then sprinkle crumbled prosciutto in the center. Place a cube of pate on top of the prosciutto, then wrap the thigh around the filling and secure with toothpicks.

  • Heat corn oil in a large skillet over high heat. Place thighs into oil, and cook until browned all over, about 5 minutes. When browned, place thighs seam side down into a glass baking dish.

  • Bake in preheated oven until the chicken is no longer pink, and the juices run clear, 25 to 30 minutes, depending on size.

Great recipe! I did not use foie gras it is expensive. I used a regular pate and it was delicious! I would also try with the mock foie gras recipe posted here as well. Read More

Delicious and easy recipe- don't change a thing! Foie gras is a bit pricey as are most quality ingredients. As for it being "cruel" that is a misconception easily disproved with a little research. Enjoy! Read More

It was a lot of work but really tasted good. I used the leftovers in a chili recipe including the prosciutto and foie gras which I made a mock foie gras recipe I found on this website. The chili along with other ingredients turned out great. Read More
