Chicken in a Prosciutto di Parma jacket

Jacket chicken

This dish is great for showing off, because it consists out of layers which – in my modest opinion – always look a tad more fancy than just a plain serving of meat, veggies and potatoes or something like that. Also, there’s not much work to it. And people will love it. At least my mom did. But there’s always the possibility she just said so because I’m her daughter. You know, it’s a parents’ job to like and love everything the kid does. Though, my mamske isn’t one to lie when she doesn’t like something. Anyhow, drifting off topic. Let’s start to cook:

You’ll need (makes 2 servings, about 400 kcal pp)

Preheat your oven to 200° Celsius. Put a large grill pan on a high heat. Add the chicken breasts. I always like to bake them first, so the outside looks crispy and brown (no oven will give you that result no matter how long you keep it in!). Just bake them roughly on the outside, they don’t have to be done on the inside. Take them out of the pan and make an incision/gap right in the middle. Fill up with goat cheese.  You can use any other type of crème cheese, it’ll work just as fine. Wrap around the prosciutto di parma and pop in the oven for about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile heat a large wok pan with some coconut oil. Cut the broccoli and cauliflower into small pieces. Rinse them well before adding them the wok. Stir fry thoroughly. You can add some water to speed up the process. Leave the lit on top.

That is it. Looks pretty and tastes great. And quite easy and quick after a busy workday. (oh: and so healthy!) You can accompany this dish with rice or pasta if you want.

Bon appetit!
