Chicken Allasio

A wholesome tasty meal

A wholesome tasty meal

You need:

Two chicken breasts

One beef steak tomato

One mixed meat tapas packet containing choritzo and parma ham

One ball of fresh Mozzarella

Olive oil

Oregano

This one is a bit fiddly but it is worth it. Take each chicken breast and cut a pocket in them with a sharp knife. Roll up the choritzo and insert into the pocket of the breast. Then wrap the parma ham around the breast. Take an oven proof dish and add a table spoon of olive oil to the bottom. Add the chicken and ham carefully. Then using a fresh knife chop the tomato into small diced pieces and place carefully on top of the chicken. Then take the mozzarella ball and chop it into slices. Take equal amounts of Mozzarella and place on top of the tomatoes. This isn’t as easy as it looks. Finally add a teaspoon of Oregano to the top of each.

Place the dish with the chicken in it into a pre-heated oven at 160 degrees and cook for 30 minutes or until you are certain it is cooked. Check the middle with a knife if you are not sure.

Allasio is a small town in northern Italy where I first tried a dish similar to this. I recommend a visit some day.

Buono appetito!
