Swiss Chicken

An old favourite that delivers so much flavour with very little effort.

Serves: 6
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes
  • 250g Swiss style cheese
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1 teaspoon French mustard
  • 6 chicken fillets, skinned
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 6 thin slices Gypsy ham or smoked ham
  • fresh thyme sprigs, for garnish

Finely slice or grate cheese. Mix wine and mustard together, pour over chicken, season with pepper and marinate for 15-30 minutes. Heat oil in a frypan and quickly sear chicken fillets on both sides until just golden but not completely cooked. Wrap each chicken fillet in a slice of ham and place on a baking paper-lined oven tray. Top with cheese and a few thyme sprigs and bake at 200°C for 15-20 minutes until chicken is cooked and cheese has melted. Serve with salad or vegetables.
