You've adjusted the recipe from 4 (as originally posted) to 4 Servings. The ingredients above reflect 4 Servings, but the instructions reflect the as-posted 4. You may need to adjust the times, temperatures or quantities mentioned in the recipe below as needed.

Delicious served with roasted tomatoes and crisp green salad.

1. First preheat the oven to 200?C/400F/gas 6. Next spread the chicken breasts out on a board and, with a sharp knife, make a small slit in the top of each one to create a ''pocket''.

2. Spread the inside of the pocket with the classic pesto and layer the sun-dried tomato slices onto each chicken breast.

3. Wrap each chicken breast with 2 slices of Parma ham and put them on a baking sheet.

4. Finally drizzle each one with oil and bake them in the oven for 20-25 mins or until the chicken is cooked through.

Takes: 10 mins plus 25 mins cooking

Very good recipe. We've made it a bunch of times and it's a family favorite. Also very easy to skip tomatoes for a daughter who doesn't like them
