Recipe - Chicken wrapped in Pancetta served on leeks
I had a request for a fairly healthy dish, based on chicken breasts, this weekend. This is what I threw together. Healthy or not. ;)
Ingredients (serves 2)
2 skinless chicken breasts
2 leeks, sliced into about 1.5 - 2 cm rounds
Pancetta, enough to wrap the kitchen breasts
Thyme, fresh sprigs
Heat the oven to 200c/Fan 180c/400F/Gas mark 6.
Put the leeks in a oven safe dish. Pour white wine into the dish, finish off with some balsamic vinegar and season it. Let this marinate for a bit.
Wrap the pancetta around the chicken breasts and put them on top off the leeks. Put a sprig or two of thyme on top of the chicken breasts.
Put the dish into the oven and keep it there for about 30 - 35 minutes, or until cooked.
Serve with new potatoes and roasted vegetables. Don't forget to spoon some of the juices from the roasting dish over the chicken, they' taste delicious!
