Prosciutto, asparagus & fontina stuffed chicken

Method

  • Preheat oven to 200°-220°C fan forced (220°-240°C normal).
  • Briefly blanch the asparagus in boiling water until crisp-tender. Drain well.
  • Batten out the chicken breasts to an even thickness under plastic wrap.
  • Lay the prosciutto on top of each chicken breast and then top with the asparagus and fontina cheese. Roll up, wrap in the crepinette and place in a lightly oiled roasting tray. Cook in the oven for 10-12 mins, until firm to the touch.
  • When ready, remove the chicken from the tray and allow to rest for about 5 mins, before slicing.
  • While the chicken is cooking, heat 1 tbsp oil from the chargrilled capsicums in a heavy-bottomed pot and gently saute the onion and garlic. Then add 1 tbsp capsicums with the tomatoes, balsamic and sugar. Mix well and gently cook down, adding ¼ cup stock as you do so. Add the basil and toss to heat through.
  • Arrange the sliced chicken in a round on individual plates, spoon a good dollop of the sauce in the centre and serve with your favourite green vegies alongside.
