Ingredients
  • 50g fresh white breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 Asda SmartPrice Chicken Breast Fillets (skinless)
  • 4 fresh basil leaves, plus extra for garnish
  • 4 thin slices cooked ham
  • 125g Asda Mozzarella, drained and sliced
  • New potatoes, to serve
Method
  • Pre-heat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6. Mix the breadcrumbs with 1 tsp of the olive oil.

  • Put each chicken breast fillet between 2 pieces of cling film and bash with a rolling pin or the base of a heavy pan until half its original thickness. Remove from the cling film and brush both sides of the fillet with olive oil. Cook in a large non-stick frying pan for 2 minutes on each side.

  • Transfer the chicken to a baking tray. Top each fillet with a basil leaf, then wrap in a slice of ham, leaving the join underneath. Top with slices of mozzarella and sprinkle on the breadcrumbs.

  • Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the breadcrumbs are crispy and golden. Garnish with fresh basil leaves and serve with new potatoes.
