Before starting with any other ingredient for the preparation of Chicken cannelloni, we are going to put the chicken breasts in a pan on the fire so that they are roasted. It is important that you ensure that the breasts are not dry, since then they must go to the oven and we could get a very hard meat.


We put the oven to preheat some 200ºC and, meanwhile, we are biting chicken breasts. Here the grain goes to taste and I want to say that if you like to notice the texture of the meat, it is best to chop it by knife. If on the contrary, you are one of those who prefer a softer touch, even pate type, then you must use the kitchen robot.


We clean the mushrooms with a clean cloth, we remove the most earthy part of the trunk and chop them very small. We add chopped parsley (better if fresh) and tarragon. We also incorporate the chopped chicken and beat the egg. We put everything together and stir well, until we have a kind of pasta with which we are going to stuff the rich chicken cannelloni.


In a saucepan, with boiling water and salt, we cook the plates of pasta until they are al dente. We take them out and we place them on a clean cloth. We gently grease a refractory source. We fill the cannelloni and we wrap them on themselves, forming the classic curl.


We accommodate the Chicken cannelloni at the refractory source. We bathe with the hot bechamel, sprinkle a little salt and pepper to taste and sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese. We take the dish to the oven and let it cook for 30 minutes or until we verify that the chicken cannelloni look crispy on top. We serve right away.
