Method

  1. Heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Beat together the goat’s cheese, lemon zest, chilli, tarragon and some seasoning.

Season the chicken breasts, then wrap 2 slices of prosciutto around each, covering the pocket tightly.

  2. Put on a baking tray, drizzle with olive oil and cook for 18-20 mins until cooked through but still moist, and the juices run clear.
