1. Precook wild rice as a pilaf with chopped onions, chicken
stock, and appropriate amount of water. When cool, add grated Parmesan
cheese and let mixture cool.
2. Cut chicken breast portions butterfly style (i.e. slice in half and
spread open. Flatten and slightly stretch them (by gently pounding them
between two sheets of wax paper or inside a clean plastic bag. Season with
salt and pepper.
3. Lay a cone-shaped portion of rice stuffing on one side of each
flattened breast. Roll chicken breast up in a cone shape. Wrap each cone
firmly in aluminum foil (to maintain shape during cooking: the
professional recipe calls for plastic foil wrapping, but aluminum foil is
recommended for home cooking).
4. Blanch green leek stems, then refresh in cold water.
5. Make 4 very thin crepes about 20 cms wide (ingredients not included
To cook: 1. Blanch pearled vegetables, celery and peas, then saute in
approximately 10 g butter, adding salt and pepper according to taste.
Keep a quarter aside.
2. To make sauce, reduce chicken stock and add fresh cream. Cook
briefly, then strain. Add fresh lemon juice and finish with butter as
required. Adjust seasoning and add chopped chervil according to taste.
3. Saute morels in approximately 10 g butter.
4. Heat some chicken stock (5 cups should be sufficient to completely
cover the four wrapped chicken portions). Simmer breasts in hot stock for
approximately 7 minutes. Remove from pan, discard aluminum foil
wrappings, and saute in approximately 60 g butter until lightly browned.
Then slice each into six portions, cut at an angle (30 to 40 degrees).
To present: Treasure Hunt takes the form of a chicken breast "boat", with
morel oars being rowed towards crepe "treasure bag" of vegetable "precious
stones" some of which have spilled on the shore.
1. Portion out 3/4 of vegetable pearls, celery and peas onto crepes
lifting crepe edges upwards to form bag shapes. Tie tops of bags with
blanched green leek stems (with decorative knotted bows if stems are long
2. Pour sauce onto plates. Arrange chicken slices in a line on sauce,
lay thick ends of morels between them. Place a crepe bag on each plate,
with reserved vegetable pearls laid beside bag. Garnish with chervil
sprigs (or watercress or parsley).
