Ingredients

Directions

Preheat the oil to 250 degrees F in a frying pot.

Pound the chicken breasts flat. Place one piece of prosciutto, 1/2 cup of the spinach and 1/4 cup of the mozzarella on the center of each flattened chicken breast. Roll the chicken, tucking in the sides as you go to form a ball-like shape.

In a shallow bowl, whisk the milk and eggs together with a bit of salt and pepper. Add the flour to a second bowl. Put the breadcrumbs in a third bowl. Dredge the rolled chicken breasts in the flour, then dip into the egg mixture and, lastly, dredge in the breadcrumbs, using your hands to form a ball-like shape again. (Once breaded, the chicken can be refrigerated for up for 1 day.)

Deep-fry the breaded chicken breasts for 20 minutes, or until fully cooked. Let rest for 5 minutes.

To make the sauce, add the brandy to a medium saucepan over medium-high heat; cook until reduced by half. Add the cream and hot sauce, and bring to a simmer. Reduce to low heat and add the butter and blackberries.

To plate, slice each chicken breast into 4 slices and drizzle the blackberry sauce on top. Serve immediately.
