Chicken stuffed with Coriander Pesto, wrapped in Prosciutto

This meal came about tonight because I wanted to make the coriander pesto, and I remember years ago having tried coriander pesto for the first time, stuffed into chicken breasts. I can't see why shop bought pesto wouldn't also work. I've also done variations of this meal using blue cheese to stuff the chicken and wrapping in bacon instead of prosciutto.  This meal doesn't need a recipe really, cut a pocket into the biggest part of the chicken breast and spoon some pesto into the hole. Wrap the prosciutto around the chicken breast, I grated on a little lemon zest. Season with salt and pepper. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 190C for 20-25 mins until the chicken is cooked and the ham crispy.  Spoon the lovely juices over the chicken.  Once again I put some uncooked new potatoes and some raw carrots in to roast for 50 min, why bother having to peel and par-boil when these are so delicious, without the extra work. This was probably my favourite meal since I started this blog. 


  1. Looks yummy. I trust we will have a pancake-based posting tomorrow :)

  2. Do you think I should post pancakes? Does everybody know how to do pancakes? I'm actually not great that great at making them..

  3. A shocking admission ;-) I guess only post if you've got something new to offer, in the way of fillings maybe
