Parma wrapped Chicken breast

Sorry I haven't posted here in a while , I've been having problems with a tooth - well non tooth now and eating has been somewhat limited, sauces can't be too runny, food can't be too chewy or dry for that matter because it's awkward to drink! Anyway I haven't had this in ages and in fact I've only ever had it in a restaurant so it was time to come up with my own recipe.
So simple and delicious! Great for a weeknight meal and worked well with my limited diet.

Parma wrapped chicken breast

Serves 2


2 chicken breasts
4 slices of parma ham
salt & pepper to season
4 peeled cloves of garlic
2 tsp thyme
2 tsp rosemary

1. Wrap the chicken breasts in the parma ham, add some salt and pepper to season.
2. Heat oil in a pan. Cook the wrapped chicken on both sides for 3 minutes.
3. Preheat oven to 190˚C. Spread the garlic cloves, thyme and rosemary in an oven proof dish. Set chicken on top.
4. Cook in the oven for 20-25 minutes and serve.


  1. Ruth this looks delicious :-), I hope your feeling ok teeth can be a real pain!.

  2. Thanks! It's taking it's time healing and making me consume a lot of painkillers but I'm promised it will all be worth it in the end. The tooth had been giving me hassle for years so I'm glad to see the back of it.

    In the mean time I'm trying to distract myself with thoughts of lovely foods I'll be able to eat!
