Roasted parmesan chicken on a bed of creamed leeks and crispy prosciutto, accompanied by honey roasted carrots and parsnips.


For the chicken:

  • 4 skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 cup finely grated parmesan

For the creamed leeks:

  • 4 slices prosciutto
  • 2 large leeks
  • 2 tsp garlic puree
  • 100g finely grated good quality cheddar cheese
  • 100ml double cream
  • Large knob salted butter

For the honey roasted carrots and parsnips:

  • 5 large carrots
  • 4 large parsnips
  • Large knob salted butter
  • 1 tbsp clear honey


  • STEP 1
    Preheat the over to 200C/fan 190/gas 5.
  • STEP 2
    Peel and roughly chop the carrots and parsnips and boil in a pan of salted water for approx 8 minutes.
  • STEP 3
    Whilst the carrots and parsnips are boiling, place the egg white in a medium sized bowl. Dip each chicken breast into the egg white and then straight into the grated parmesan, coating the full area of the breast. Place the coated breasts onto a baking tray and place in the centre of the oven for 25-30 minutes.
  • STEP 4
    In a small bowl combine the honey and a knob of salted butter with some salt and pepper. Place in the microwave for approx 30 seconds until the butter is melted. Remove the parsnips and carrots from the boil, drain and distribute evenly on a baking tray. Drizzle the honey and butter mixture over the carrots and parsnips. Shake the tray to coat the vegetables and place on the top tray of the oven for 20-25 minutes (the vegetables should be ready at the same time as the chicken).
  • STEP 5
    About half-way through the cooking time of the chicken, place the four slices of prosciutto on a tray in the centre of the oven; again these will be ready and crispy at the same time the chicken has finished cooking.
  • STEP 6
    Slice the leeks thinly and place in a pan with the knob of salted butter and garlic puree on a medium heat. Cook for approx 5 minutes until the leeks have begun to soften. Add the cream and grated cheddar and stir. Keep on a low heat for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • STEP 7
    Remove the now crispy prosciutto from the oven and roughly break into large chunks. Place a spoonful of creamed leeks on each plate and scatter the prosciutto on top. Neatly arrange the parmesan chicken breast on top and the honey carrots and parsnips alongside. Enjoy!
