Preparation

Step 1

Score the underside of the chicken breasts, criss-cross, with a small knife and season with a little pepper and most of the thyme leaves.

Step 2

Grate a little lemon zest over them and sprinkle with the parmesan.

Step 3

Lay 3 prosciutto slices on each chicken breast, overlapping them slightly. Drizzle with a little olive oil and sprinkle with the remaining thyme leaves

Step 4

Put a square of cling film over each breast and bash to about 1cm thickness.

Step 5

Put a frying pan onto a medium heat. Add the chicken breasts, prosciutto side down. Drizzle over some olive oil. Cook for 3 minutes on each side, giving the ham side an extra 30 seconds to crisp up
