 Pork and Chicken Roulade
This is a very popular recipe with the Test Kitchen staff. I received it from co-worker Kristin Arnett and know several others who have made it. —Janet Briggs
3-4 ServingsPrep: 45 min. + marinating Bake: 40 min.

  • Salt and additional pepper
  • 3 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream

  • In a food processor, finely chop garlic. Add the pepper, parsley and
  • basil; cover and process until finely chopped. While processing,
  • gradually add 3 tablespoons oil in a steady stream. Set aside.
