How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Make a slit along the length of each chicken breast and enlarge to make a "pocket".
  • Divide the mozzarella cheese among the four pockets.
  • Top the cheese with the tomato slices, crushed garlic, and bell peppers.
  • Dust with pepper and any other savory spices you enjoy.
  • Lay a slice of ham over the open slit, gently wrap around the chicken breast, and tie the bundle together with string. (I tied each breast down with two strings).
  • Heat the oil in a large frying plan (ideally with an ovenproof handle) and saute over medium heat for four minutes, turning once. (I have a cast iron pan that handled this without any oil).
  • Transfer the skillet to the oven (or if not oven-proof, gently spoon the breasts in to an oven-proof dish for the oven).
  • Bake until the chicken is cooked through, about twelve minutes.
