Chicken with Boursin and Parma Ham




Yield 4 people


Chicken with Boursin and Parma ham is an easy recipe and looks impressive for an informal dinner. Serve the chicken with a roasted red pepper sauce, green beans and rustic roast potatoes.




  1. Using a sharp knife, for each chicken breast cut a small pocket in the largest end about an inch into the breast.
  2. Stuff the pocket with Boursin cheese, pushing it in with a teaspoon or your fingers.
  3. Season the chicken with pepper.
  4. Wrap each breast with parma ham making sure you cover the opening containing the Boursin stuffing.
  5. Place the chicken breasts in a roasting tin and chill in the refrigerator until you are ready to cook.
  6. Heat the oven to 180°C.
  7. Remove the chicken from the refrigerator and pour in the dry white wine. Next, loosely cover the roasting tin with foil, making sure the foil doesn’t touch the chicken.
  8. Bake in the oven until cooked, about 20-30 minutes depending on the size of the chicken breasts.
  9. Remove the foil about 10 minutes before the end of the cooking time.
  10. Allow to rest in a warm place for 5 minutes and serve on a pool of red pepper sauce.
