I usually post vegetarian recipes full of flavor, perfect for lunches. Today I wanted to make an exception because I found this recipe in one of my old cooking books of old kitchen, and I remembered how delicious it is: an italian chicken Braciola.
I come from an Italian family with mixtures of America, that is why my recipes are full of tradition with a touch of tropical flavor, color and lots of flavor. I hope you enjoy it as much as I:

  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup chopped parsley
  • 300 grams of thinly sliced ​​serrano ham

  • 1 large can peeled tomatoes
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves of crushed garlic
  • 1/2 grated carrots
  • Olive oil
