Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Lay the chicken fillets on a chopping board, season all over and make a small incision (about 4-5cm long and 3cm deep) with a sharp knife in the middle of each one.

Stuff 2 slices of the mozzarella and 3 basil leaves into the ‘pocket’ – don’t worry if either is poking out a little. Wrap each chicken breast with 1½ slices of the Parma ham to cover the breast and seal in the pocket.

Heat the oil in a pan and sear the chicken and ham parcels on both sides until golden. Place on a baking tray and bake in the oven for 15-20 mins until the chicken is cooked through with no pink showing (cut into the thickest part of the breast to check the meat is cooked through). Serve with a side salad or some steamed greens, if you like.
