  • 3 chicken fillets
  • 2 eggs
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • Fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 300 g mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • Olive oil for frying


  1. Prepare the Chicken:
    • Start by slicing each chicken fillet horizontally to create a pocket, being careful not to cut all the way through. Season the inside and outside of the fillets with salt and black pepper.
  2. Make the Filling:
    • Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the finely chopped onion and sauté until translucent.
    • Add the minced garlic and chopped mushrooms to the skillet. Cook until the mushrooms are soft and all the moisture has evaporated. Season with salt and pepper.
    • Transfer the mushroom mixture to a bowl and let it cool slightly. Once cooled, mix in the chopped fresh parsley and sour cream to bind the filling.
  3. Stuff the Fillets:
    • Spoon the mushroom and onion filling evenly into the pockets of each chicken fillet. Secure the opening with toothpicks if necessary to prevent the filling from leaking out during cooking.
  4. Prepare for Frying:
    • Beat the eggs in a shallow dish, seasoning with a little salt and pepper. Place the flour in another shallow dish.
    • Dip each stuffed fillet first in flour, ensuring it’s lightly coated, then in the beaten egg.
  5. Fry the Chicken:
    • Heat a generous amount of olive oil in a clean skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the chicken fillets.
    • Fry each side for about 4-5 minutes or until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through. The cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of the fillets.
  6. Serve:
    • Once cooked, remove the chicken from the skillet and let it rest for a couple of minutes. Remove any toothpicks if used.
    • Slice the fillets if desired and serve hot. They are perfect with a side of steamed vegetables or a light salad.
