Chicken with Prosciutto and Polenta Recipe

Ingredients : Serves 4

30 ml/2 tbsp chopped tarragon
150 g/5 oz butter or margarine

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

4 boneless chicken breasts
8 slices of prosciutto
300 ml/0.5 pt/1.25 cups Chicken Stock
1 quantity of Soft Polenta

Method :

Mix the tarragon into the butter or margarine and season to taste with salt and pepper. Make a slit down the side of each chicken breast and fill with the flavored butter. Fold the edges together and wrap in the slices of prosciutto, then chill until the butter is firm.


Arrange the chicken in a roasting tin (pan) and pour the stock over. Cook in a preheated oven at 200C/400F/gas mark 6 for about 30 minutes, basting occasionally, until tender. Remove the chicken from the tin and boil the stock until reduced by half. Serve the chicken with the sauce spooned over and the polenta served separately.
