This recipe came about because I had some leftover sage and onion stuffing that I wanted to use up, and was inspired by Delia’s lovely recipe for vegetarian sausage rolls.
For two people
2/3 slices of stale bread
½ small onion, or a shallot
½ tsp dried sage
Salt and pepper to taste
1 or 2 tb grated cheese (a mix of strong cheddar and parmesan is very good)
2 chicken breasts
4 slices of parma ham/prosciutto
To make the stuffing simply pop the first four items into a small blender/mini chopper and process. Add to a bowl with the grated cheese and mix together.
Lay the slices of parma ham/prosciutto out on a chopping board, butterfly the chicken breasts and place in the middle of the slices of ham/prosciutto. Add half of the stuffing mix to each breast fillet, fold up and wrap in the ham. Pop into an oven proof dish, season with black pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. Cook at 180oC (350oF / gas mark 4) for 30 to 35 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through.
