Method

  1. To make this chicken breast recipe, preheat the oven to 200C (400F, gas mark 6). Next spread the chicken breasts out on a board and, with a sharp knife, make a small slit in the top of each one to create a 'pocket'.
  2. Spread the inside of the pocket with the classic pesto and layer the sun-dried tomato slices onto each chicken breast.
  3. Wrap each chicken breast with two slices of Parma ham and put them on a baking sheet.
  4. Finally drizzle each one with oil and bake them in the oven for 20-25 mins or until the chicken is cooked through.
