Russ and I came up with this last night. It was excellent and enjoyed by all of us. I think you could use tinned crab-we used fresh crab we caught ourselves.


  1. Mix crab, cheese, onions, dill, lemon juice and salt and pepper together in a bowl.
  2. Heat oven to moderated.
  3. Spray a baking tray with oil.
  4. Open out the chicken fillet, spread one half with a quarter of the crab mix.
  5. Enclose with other half.
  6. Wrap each fillet with 2 thin slices of prosciutto, maing sure ends are on the underside.
  7. Place on the baking tray in the moderate oven and bake for about 25 minutes.
  8. We ate ours with hollondaise sauce.

Instead of the Swiss cheese I used cream cheese and it was fabulous! I loved the creaminess of the cheese with the other ingredients and it made for a great stuffing mixture for the chicken!

Quick, Easy and Yummo!!! We loved this I made with fresh crab meat as I feel you can not beat fresh. I am sure it would be nice with tinned but no where near as delicious as fresh. I loved the fact that the stuffing was nice but did not over power the gorgeous flavour of the crab. I loved using crab as a stuffing for chicken, but I hate it when a recipe gets so over complicated with filling, that you loose that crab flavour. No problems here a perfect balance. I served ours over fresh asparagus, mushrooms and sun-dried tomato. I also served with a hollandaise sauce as Jan had suggested. It was a really lovely meal and wrapping the chicken in the prosciutto to finish was a nice touch that just added to the overall flavour. Cheers Jan

This was an easy recipe and very good. It was moist and the proscitto was a nice touch. I did season the chicken with salt and pepper before stuffing.
