  • Step 3

    Make sure you get lots of flavour into the stuffing (season to taste). Add more herbs if required.

  • Step 4

    Slice each chicken breast length ways and gently open to create a cavity.

    Cover a chopping board with some cling film and lay out two pieces of Parma ham per chicken breast.

    Divide the stuffing into four and fill each chicken breast, season and wrap with Parma ham. Tightly wrap each breast in cling film for 10 minutes.

  • Step 7

    Take cling film off and place the chicken on a baking tray and cook for 20 – 30 minutes or until cooked through.
