    Frenchfoodle's Note:

    I have chicken in my fridge, lots of chicken breast! as I found a super deal in my favourite little farm shop in Somerset "Beckington Farm". Hazelnuts are in season, so let's mix!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Steam the chicken breast for 30 minutes.
    2. 2
      Remove the middle stem of the spinach, wash and drain.
    3. 3
      Reserve 20 nice looking spinach leaves ( or more if you have small leaves, better than having to go back to the shop like me!) Cook them 30 seconds, 3 or 4 at the time (to avoid them getting damaged) and dress them flat on a plate.
    4. 4
      Cook the rest of spinach in a little water with a lid for 4/5 minutes or until cooked.
    5. 5
      Drain the spinach and chop with a knife.
    6. 6
      Separate the chicken with your hands as much as you can and finish by cutting with a knife.
    7. 7
      Crush the hazelnut in a pestle and mortar.
    8. 8
      Tear the tarragon leaves in pieces.
    9. 9
      Mix all the ingredients above with the ricotta and form balls in any size you like! Small for snacks or starter or bigger for a meal.
    10. 10
      Envelop each ball delicately in a spinach leaf.
    11. 11
      This dish can be prepared in advance as you just need to steam the chicken balls for 3 minutes. Finish with a few sesame seeds on the top.
    12. 12
      I serve this dish with rice.
    13. 13
      The possibilities are endless, you can even use blue cheese mixed with a little ricotta, if you like.
    14. 14
      Bon Appetit!
