Preparation method
  • Using a sharp knife cut long deep pockets into the side of each chicken breast. Slice the Taleggio into 4 equal size pieces. Divide the cheese, olives and basil leaves between the pockets of each chicken tucking in well to completely enclose. Wrap each breast in 2-3 slices of Parma ham to enclose completely. Place on a baking sheet, cover and chill for 30 minutes.
  • Heat 1-2 tbsp of the olive oil in a large frying pan and cook the chicken breasts for about 20-25 minutes, turning occasionally until browned all over and when the chicken is pierced with a skewer the juices run clear. Remove from the heat, place on a warm serving plate and keep warm.
  • Meanwhile divide the lettuce, rocket, nectarines, raspberries, avocado and tomatoes between serving plates.
  • Add the remaining oil and balsamic vinegar to the pan scraping together with any pan juices. Slice the chicken breasts and arrange on salads. Drizzle over dressing and serve immediately.
