Goat's Cheese and Red Pesto Chicken

Chicken, prosciutto, pesto and goat's cheese. Need I say more? OK, maybe a little...

I make this deliciously simple dish over and over again. It is near effortless, healthy and satisfying. And in my mind, anything that delivers maximum satisfaction with minimum effort is worth sharing.


I have prepared this chicken at times using red, green, or walnut pesto as well as mixed olive tapenades, all of which are delicious! However, for today's recipe I have chosen red pesto. Out of all of my previous variations, this is my favorite. Enjoy!


Serves 2

2 chicken breasts
100g soft goat's cheese
2-3 tbls good quality red pesto
4 slices prosciutto

Preheat oven to 400F

Mix the goat's cheese and pesto together until well combined.

Cut a slit into the side of each chicken breast and fill with the goat's cheese pesto mixture. Wrap two slices of prosciutto around each chicken breast. Season and place onto a lightly greased baking tray. Cook for about 20-25 minutes or until cooked through. Serve with roasted vine tomatoes.
