Pollo Alla Toscana Recipe: Method
- 1 – Preheat the oven to 200oC/400oF/Gas 6
- 2 – Butterfly and flatten each chicken breast. Place breasts on flat surface. Season with salt/pepper and garlic and place 3 basil leaves and 50g of mozzarella cheese in each chicken breast and then roll the breasts up.
- 3 – Wrap the chicken breast with 2 slices of parma ham. This will not only flavour the chicken but also protect it while it cooks. lightly cover with a little butter and wrap each breast in tin foil and then place in preheated oven for 30mins.

Meanwhile to make the sauce, place 200g of fresh cream with 200g of Gorgonzola cheese in a saucepan with a little ground pepper and a swig of white wine. Cook slowly until cream reduces and becomes a thicker consistency.
To plate up place the Gorgonzola cream sauce on a serving plate with the spinach and place chicken breasts on top. This dish is really nice served with roasted vegetables and your favourite glass of wine.
