Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Mix the mascarpone with the rosemary, garlic and seasoning. Place the chicken breasts on a board and lift, but don’t detach, the skin. Put a spoonful of the mascarpone mix under the skin of each breast. Wrap 2 slices of prosciutto around each, as neatly and tightly as you can, to keep the filling enclosed.
  2. Heat a non-stick frying pan, add the olive oil and quickly brown the chicken on both sides. Transfer to a roasting tin, then finish off in the oven for 15-20 mins until just cooked.
  3. Add the lemon juice to the roasting tin and stir over the heat, scraping off any crispy bits. Spoon the juices over the chicken and serve with potatoes and green beans.

Great recipe but I agree with the other comments - remove the skin (or use skinless chicken breast). A very tasty and easy to cook meal.

As others have said, remove the skin and cut a slit in the chicken to make this a bit healthier. I would use a very small roasting tin or small glass dish, too, to catch as much of the juice as possible.

Really tasty. I served it with linguine tossed in garlic and chilli and a green salad.

This was lovely. I also used skinless chicken breasts. Next time, I will probably try a light mascarpone. Definitely one to try again!

Recently made this for a romantic evening with my boyfriend - it was delicious! My boyfriend who is a fussy eater loved it. Like a few others I cut a pocket in the chicken. Will definitely make this again.

This was even better stuffed with goat's cheese which gave more flavour than the mascarpone.

It was good but way too much garlic. I suggest half the garlic and skin the chicken. Cut a pocket in and put the Mascarpone in that instead. I will try again with changes.

Absolutely fab. Just like, if not better, than the ones you can buy from Sainsburys but with no additives etc. My favourite recipe at the moment.
