    Chicken rolls braised in wine. Many ways to vary this into interesting derivations. The original that I based this on was with Beef and Barolo. I recall using cheese, bread crumbs and pine nuts in the filling. Seasoned with Rosemary. A balsamic variation with rosemary would also be quite good. 

    This was my inspiration.

    Chicken cooks much faster of course.

    Chicken Cacciatore, Chicken Picatta, Chicken Marsala, Chicken Scallopini, Chicken Parmesan.  Some of these are normally served with a side of pasta, but that is not mandatory. 

    I can give you a recipe for any of them if you want.

    baked chicken similar to 'Shake-n-Bake', doesn't have a fancy name, but I had it several times when in Italy.  slice boneless chicken into strips, coat with olive oil, roll in seasoned bread crumbs, bake @ 350F until done, about 15 minutes.

    also some call this FRANCAISE  and  some call it ROMANO.  its chicken cutlet floured,  then dipped in beaten eggs w/ grated parm/romano cheese-parsley-lemon juice. sauteed, clarified butter hot.  it can stick so be careful.  some garnish with capers and lemon slices.
