  • 10 oz cherry tomatoes
  • 5 oz asparagus
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lb chicken breast cut in half horizontally
  • 2 oz prosciutto or 8 slices
  • 1/2 cup black olives
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth (stock)
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 oz shredded parmesan cheese
  • Basil leaves to serve


  • Preheat the oven to 400F (200c)
  • Place a large oven-proof frypan over medium-high heat
  • Wrap each chicken piece in 1 or 2 slices of prosciutto and season with pepper
  • Heat 1 tbsp of the oil and cook chicken/prosciutto parcel for 1 minute on each side or until browned
  • Remove pan from heat and add the tomatoes, asparagus and olives to the pan
  • Pour in the stock and lemon juice
  • Bake for 13 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through
  • Serve with freshly grated parmesan and basil leaves


  • Tip for preparing asparagus - to trim asparagus quickly, simply bend the stem at the woody, thicker end, and it will break off. Discard the thick end.
  • Serving carb eaters? Serve with garlic bread for carb eaters or crusty bread
  • No ovenproof skillet? Transfer the browned chicken to a baking dish and add the tomatoes, asparagus and olives. Pour in the stock and lemon juice and bake in the oven for 13-15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
  • Dairy-free? Skip the parmesan cheese and sprinkle over some fresh basil leaves
  • Leftovers? The prosciutto wrapped chicken is delicious reheated the next day for lunch. It will keep in the fridge for 2 days.
