Serves: 6
This easy chicken dish makes an impressive party dish. Serve with a mixed leaf salad, dressed with olive oil and lemon juice and some new potatoes.
6 Skinless chicken breast fillets
12 Slices Parma ham
8 Sun dried tomatoes, drained and chopped
75g Soft butter
1 Small red onion, finely chopped
Black pepper
Fry Light cooking spray
  • Pre-heat oven to 210C, 190C Fan, Gas 6.
  • Cut a pocket in the top of each chicken breast, using a sharp vegetable knife.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the sun dried tomatoes with the butter, red onion and the parsley. Season with a little freshly ground black pepper. Mix well to combine.
  • Divide the butter mixture evenly between the chicken pieces, pushing it into the pockets, but don’t worry if a little smears out on to the tops.
  • Wrap 2 slices of Parma ham tightly round each breast, ensuring the pocket is well sealed.
  • Place in a large roasting tin, lined with a non-stick liner.
  • Spray all over with a little cooking oil.
  • Roast for 20-25 minutes, until chicken is thoroughly cooked through.
  • Serve, slicing each breast into thick slices, if preferred, accompanied by the salad and steamed new potatoes.
