Chicken and garlic

Nina sent the recipe to this delicious-looking and very galicky dish:

The dish is carefully constructed by pounding some chicken fillets (not too carefully), so they spread out.
Careful to not overdo it, so the meat will still be intact and won't have "holes" in it.
Next, you mash up 1 to 2 cloves of garlic, half a tablespoon of butter, salt, pepper and some chopped parsley, zap it in the microwave a little (only a few seconds, you don't want the butter to be all runny, just soft and manageable).
Mix everything up and add the flavoured butter to the centre of the fillet, rolling it up and pinning the edges with toothpicks. Sprinkle a bit of parsley on top, season well and drizzle a bit of oil, and then cook until you reach the desired appearance. I expect it would go nicely with a side of mashed potatoes.
My own sidedish was a grilled butternut squash and sweet potato dish I'm saving for later posting. :)
