"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Directions:
Combine all ingredients for stuffing, adding egg last and set aside. Combine wine and stock in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil and reduce slightly. Whisk in mustard, lemon juice, and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Pound chicken to 1/4 inch thickness. Divide the stuffing between the breasts toward the middle. Fold the bottom edge of each breast over the stuffing, fold in the sides, and roll forward until completely wrapped. Secure each flap with a toothpick. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Heat oil and lightly brown chicken on all sides. Cover the skillet and turn the heat down to low and cook until juices run clear.

Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, pour the sauce into the skillet over high heat and cook, stirring and scraping the bottom with a wooden spoon. Slice the chicken into medallions, divide among plates, and spoon some of the sauce over each. Garnish with parsley and serve immediately.
