What sauce can I dip it in?

This chicken roll is good on its own. But here are the few sauces that we tried and really worked well with the dish.

  • Sweet & Chili Sauce – This is probably my favorite because it gives the dish a bit of an oomph!
  • Tomato Ketchup – Give it some more sweetness and is popular with the kids.
  • Dijon Mustard – in my opinion makes the dish more elegant and really a joy to eat.

How to make Chicken Galantina?

Alright! To get started you’ll need the following ingredients:

ingredients for the recipe

I used 1 1/2 kilos of ground chicken for this recipe which makes 10 – 12 rolls depending on the size you want it to be. The grated cheese mixed in with the chicken also depends on your taste. But for the cheese stick filling I used cheddar cheese. For the milk, you can either use fresh or evaporated milk. With the ham, either pork or chicken ham will do.

  • Wash ground chicken and drain excess water then place in a bowl. Add milk, pineapple juice, salt, and sugar and mix well until well incorporated.
  • Crack three eggs and place in a bowl. Tip in eggs one at a time in the chicken while stirring. Add the all-purpose flour and stir until no traces of flour is left.
  • Throw in the chopped ham and grated cheese and mix until well incorporated. Cover the bowl with cling film and let marinate for at least and hour or overnight.
  • When you are ready to cook, prepare aluminum foil by cutting 12″ by 12″ from the roll.
  • Scoop 3 – 4 tbsp of the chicken mix and place on bottom part of the aluminum foil. Add 1 – 2 cheddar cheese sticks on top of the chicken mix.
  • Tightly roll the aluminum foil along with the chicken while securing both ends so it won’t come out of the sides. Do this until you finish all the chicken mix.
  • Arrange the rolls in a steamer and steam over medium heat for 45 minutes. Transfer cooked rolls on a plate to cool. When cool to touch, unwrap the rolls and slice to serving size. Bon Appetit!
