Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 22o degrees celcius. To make the stuffing, mix the ricotta, garlic and herbs together in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Cut a deep slit along one side of the chicken breast to make a pocket. Divide the ricotta stuffing into 4 equal portions, spoon into the pockets and bring the edges together to enclose the filling.
  3. Wrao a slice of parma ham around each chicken breadt, folding the ends underneath to seal in the filling. Carefully place the wrapped chicken breasts on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
  4. Bake in the hot oven for 20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. Serve immediately, garnish with sage or parsley.
