This is a great way to prepare chicken breasts. The texture of the crisp cooked prosciutto goes brilliantly with the tender chicken. Bashing the chicken out thinly before you start cooking means it cooks much faster than a regular chicken breast. If you can?t get hold of prosciutto, then any kind of thin ham, such as Parma ham, or even smoked streaky bacon will work just as well.

Recipe Ingredients for Jamie Oliver's parmesan chicken breasts with crispy posh ham

2 tablespoon fresh thyme
1 pound chicken breast
1/4 teaspoon Freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon lemon zest
30 grams grated Parmesan
50 grams prosciutto
1 tablespoon Olive oil

Recipe Directions for Jamie Oliver's parmesan chicken breasts with crispy posh ham

Grate your Parmesan. Pick the thyme leaves off the stalks. Carefully score the underside of the chicken breasts in a criss-cross fashion with a small knife. Season with a little pepper (you don?t need salt as the prosciutto is quite salty). Lay your breasts next to each other and sprinkle over most of the thyme leaves. Grate a little lemon zest over them and sprinkle with Parmesan. Lay 3 prosciutto slices on each chicken breast overlapping them slightly. Drizzle a little olive oil and sprinkle with the remaining thyme leaves. Put a square of plastic wrap over each breast and give them a few really good bashes with the bottom of a saucepan until they are about inch thick.
