Our favorite chicken in its most festive version! Perfect recipe for your Sunday dinners too!


  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 150g minced chicken
  • 100g of peanut
  • 4 sticks of thyme
  • 3 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 16 slices of bacon (dry)
  • olive oil
  • salt, pepper
  • 50g of vinegar
  • 150g of red wine (mavrodafni)


  1. Open the chicken breasts in the middle and beat them between two membranes with a weight to open more.
  2. In a bowl add the minced meat, the pistachio (which is thickly crushed), the thyme, salt, pepper and parsley. Homogenize.
  3. Spread a piece of foil, put olive oil on it and spread 8 slices of bacon and place one breast in the center. Put half of the chicken mixture in the center of the chicken and close by rolling well and closing as a candy. We do the other chest like that.
  4. Boil in boiling water for 20 minutes. Remove and refrigerate.
  5. In a frying pan put olive oil and sauté the chicken on all sides.

For the sauce:

  1. In the same frying pan, add the remaining vinegar and the red wine (mavrodafni) and boil for a few minutes until cooked through.
  2. Cut the chicken in slices and serve with the sauce
