Ingredients for Stuffed Chicken with Serrano Ham

4 chicken breasts
100g Serrano ham, thinly sliced
4 cloves garlic
Handful fresh thyme
Large glass fino sherry
Olive oil

How to make Stuffed Chicken with Serrano Ham

  • Peel and chop the garlic and chop the thyme as small as you can.
  • Slice each chicken breast lengthways so it almost opens out into a fillet but don't cut all the way through.
  • Open out the chicken and place a mixture of the garlic and thyme into the middle of each piece and close again.
  • Depending on the size of your ham, you can wrap each chicken breast in the ham or simply layer the ham on top. Secure with a cocktail stick if necessary.
  • On a lightly greased baking tray, place a large piece of aluminium foil, grease lightly with olive oil and then place the chicken breasts on top.
  • Cover with another piece of foil and fold in all the edges to make a parcel but leave one end open.
  • Pour in the sherry and then secure the other end. Make sure your parcel is really tight so as not to let out the liquid during cooking.
  • Cook in a moderate oven for about 30 - 40 minutes until the chicken is cooked and still tender.
  • Serve with seasonal vegetables.
