Again this recipe was determined by what I had leftover in the fridge and turned into a really tasty meal with big compliments from my fellow diner!
I cut into the chicken breasts in the middle and put in two pieces of goat’s cheese along with a sprinkle of basil, oregano and black pepper. Then I folded the chicken breast back to it’s normal shape and wrapped two pieces of parma ham around each breast and placed on a slightly oiled baking tray.
For the carrots I cut into julienne strips and cut the asparagus into similar sized pieces and added them to the oiled baking tray, also sprinkling with a little oregano, basil and black pepper. I put the tray in the oven for 25 mins on 200 degrees.
At first I thought the dish might be a bit dry but with the melting goat’s cheese in the middle it didn’t seem dry at all. I guess it is a safe combination to have chicken, cheese and ham but I have to say the dish surpassed my expectations!
