Chicken and Prosciutto Ham Parcels

Chicken and Prosciutto Ham Parcels

This was something simple and delicious that I threw together tonight.  You will need the following:

Two chicken thighs, boneless and skinless

Two thin slices of Prosciutto ham.

Two large potatoes sliced thinly

One red pepper and a handful of mushrooms, sliced.

Set your oven on at 180 degrees celcius and take two flat bottomed baking tins.  Add a tablespoon of oil to each tin.  Slice your potatoes thinly and layer in the bottom of the first tin.  Season with low-sodium salt, pepper and oregano.  Add a splash of olive oil and leave to bake in the oven for fifteen minutes, or until golden.

Take your chicken thighs and wrap them tightly in the slices of prosciutto ham, then place on the other baking tray and place on the shelf below the potatoes in the oven.

Finally chop your mushrooms and the pepper coarsely and place them in a baking tray with a splash of oil, pepper and oregano.

Bake for at least fifteen minutes or until the chicken is completely cooked (check with probe that it is at least 75 degrees in the middle) or until it is white in the middle.  Once the potatoes are golden and slightly crispy, they are cooked.  The vegetables don’t need long, barely five or six minutes until they are soft.

Plate up and serve.
