Briw pear prosciutto stuffed chicken Easy Food

Serves 4


4 chicken fillets
Salt and black pepper
Olive oil, for cooking
½ an onion, chopped
4 slices of prosciutto
2 sage leaves, chopped
1 pear, peeled, cored and chopped
4 slices of Brie, rind removed
Small handful of baby rocket


  1. Preheat the oven to 190˚C/170˚C fan/gas mark 5.
  2. Use the tip of a sharp knife to make a lengthwise cut into the side of each chicken fillet to create a pocket, being careful not to cut all the way through.
  3. Heat one teaspoon of oil in a pan over a medium heat and cook the onion for 3-4 minutes until golden.
  4. Add the sage and pear. Season with a little salt and black pepper and cook for another 3-4 minutes. Add the rocket and stir for one minute until wilted. Set aside to cool for 10 minutes.
  5. Fill each chicken fillet with one-quarter of the stuffing. Push a slice of Brie into each pocket.
  6. Lay the slices of prosciutto out on a chopping board. Place a chicken fillet on the closest end of one slice and roll it up tightly in the prosciutto. Secure with 2-3 cocktail sticks and repeat with the remaining fillets and prosciutto.
  7. Heat one tablespoon of olive oil in a pan over a medium-high heat.
  8. Carefully sear the prosciutto-wrapped chicken on all sides until golden, working in two batches if necessary to avoid over-crowding the pan.
  9. Transfer to a baking dish and cover tightly with foil. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked.
