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
White Wine
Balsamic Vinegar
Salt
Pepper

Method
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!

Enjoy!
