Chicken & Parma Ham Involtini

Looks like a dish you'd order in a restaurant, but it's so simple to make!

Recipe By: Patricia (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/372)
Serves 1 Prep: 30 min Cook: 10 min

Ingredients

Chicken breast fillet 1 (150g)
Salt & pepper as required
Baby spinach leaves 10-12
Carrot batons 2
Green beans 3-4
Parma ham slices 3
Olive oil 1 tsp
Tomato sauce (shop bought) 2 tbsp

Method

1
Slice the chicken breast almost in half (to make two thin joined slices) then tenderise between greaseproof paper sheets to make them very thin.
2
Put two layers of cling film on the chopping board and put the thinned open chicken breast on top. Top with the spinach leaves then add the carrot batons (5mm x 10cm long) and green beans - these should be cooked first in the microwave for 1 minute.
3
Roll up the chicken tightly upwards and secure with both cling film pieces at each end, like a sweet. Put into boiling water for 15-20 minutes.
4
Allow to cool, remove the cling film and wrap the chicken around with the parma ham. Put 1 tsp olive oil in a frying pan and fry on medium heat for 1 minute.
5
Turn occasionally to cook evenly. Slice with a sharp knife and transfer to a serving dish then pour over the tomato sauce - it's ready!
