Chicken with mozzarella, basil and Parma ham

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200C, fan 180°C Lay out the fillets on a board.
  2. Season all over and carefully make a small incision about 4-5 cm (2-2 1/2 in) long and 3cm (1 1/2in) deep in the centre of each one to make a 'pocket'.
  3. Stuff 2 slices of the mozzarella and 3 basil leaves into each of the pockets - don't worry if either the herbs or cheese poke out a little.
  4. Wrap each chicken breast with 1 1/2 slices of the Parma ham to conceal the pocket.
  5. Heat the oil in a pan and sear each breast on both sides until golden.
  6. Place on a roasting tray in the oven for 8 minutes, until cooked through and the cheese is oozing.
  7. Serve with boiled potatoes in herb butter, plus salad.
