  • 2 chicken breast fillets
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp mixed herbs
  • 100g cream cheese
  • 4 slices of Parma Ham
  • Zest of 1 lemon


  1. Pre heat oven to 200°C. Cook the shallot and garlic with a little oil and pinch of salt before adding the lemon zest. Remove from heat and leave to cool.

  2. Add the mixed herbs to the cream cheese. Season and mix with the cooled shallot and garlic.

  3. Prepare the chicken by removing the mini fillet on the underside if the breast. Cut a small pocket in the thickest part of the breast and fill with half the cream cheese mixture. Seal the breast with the mini fillet and repeat this step for the second chicken breast.

  4. Lay the Parma Ham out and set the chicken on it. Wrap the Ham around the chicken as tightly as possible, securing with a cocktail stick if needed.

  5. Lay the parcels on a baking sheet and cook in the pre heated oven for about 20 minutes. Allow to rest for a few minutes before serving.

We used feta cheese in place of cream cheese and the flavours were amazing. Mix the feta with the mixed herbs and a little olive oil then stuff the breasts. Incidentally Aldi do a Parma ham substitute which is very tasty. Worth the visit and not expensive.
