Mid Week Meal

Chicken wrapped in parma ham, with philadelphia cheese
A really quick and really tasty mid-week meal. Yes Even if you're a student you need to eat well and semi-healthily.
This is a cheap dinner that  you're enjoy a whole lot more than beans on toast trust me!

What your need:

For the chicken:
  • Depending on how many your cooking for or how hungry you are, i'd say 1 chicken breast per person. Most supermarkets sell chicken breast in packs of two so you could make two and freeze one for later.
  • A pack of parma ham (tesco currently have an offer on a six pack for £2)

  • Philadelphia cheese

For the potatoes:

  • New potatoes
  • 1 to 2 cloves of garlic
  • Italian herbs

  • Vegetable oil 
  • Salt & pepper
Add a bit of veg (i've added carrots and broccoli) 


Get cooking...

Pre-heat oven at 180.C
  1. Wash your potatoes in cold water and put them into a pan. Boil on a low heat to start cooking.
  2. Whilst the potatoes are slowly boring, cut up carrots and broccoli and place to the side for later.
  3. Once the potatoes have been on the hob for about 10 mins drain the water and place on a baking tray. Cover potatoes in Vegetable oil, salt and pepper. Crush the garlic and roughly spread over the potatoes. Finally add a sprinkle of italian herbs and place in the oven.

4.     Put scores into the chicken breasts and put a table spoon full of Philadelphia on each chicken          breast and spread over with knife. Then wrap each chicken piece with a ration & and half of parma    ham. Then place in the oven with the potatoes and set the timer for 25-30mins.

5.     Whilst the Chicken etc is cooking, place the chopped vegetables in the microwave for 5mins. Once your chicken and potatoes are almost cooked put the vegetables in for a further 3minutes.

6.         Your Chicken should be a nice golden colour with a slightly crispy palma ham.
