Chicken stuffed with Goats cheese and wrapped in Prosciutto

I challenge anyone to find this meal difficult. It's the first time I have tried goats cheese with chicken and it worked really well, especially with the roasted cherry tomatoes. It was just a case of using up some goats cheese I had in the fridge and the result was really good.

Serves 4
olive oil
4 chicken breasts
75g of soft goats cheese, chopped into 4 pieces
4 slices of prosciutto
a pack of cherry tomatoes or a similar variety
salt and pepper

Heat the oven to 180C. Heat some oil in a frying pan and fry the chicken breasts until just starting to go golden. Remove from the pan and on a chopping board cut a pocket in the side of the breasts and stuff with some goats cheese. Wrap the ham around the chicken breast and place in a roasting tray, surrounded by the cherry tomatoes. Drizzle with olive oil and roast in the oven for about 20 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the tomatoes are nicely cooked. Serve with a green salad and the juices from the roasting dish.

  1. Cooked this tonight, delicious! I roasted some peppers in the dish with the tomatoes and sprinkled fresh basil leaves on top, just to use up what I had in the fridge - will definitely cook this again. Thanks!
