Reluctant Housedad's Herby Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast The Crazy Kitchen Style

I would love to live in Reluctant Housedad's house, he always has such amazing looking dinners - you should see his to die for Steak n Chips. Yesterday he posted a delicious looking dish and, unlike with most of his posh nosh, I had all the ingredients needed to recreate this 'Moreish Main' - well sort of.

Here are the ingredients required for Keith's Herby Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts wrapped in Parma Ham:

Serves 2

2 tbsp soft cheese, such as Philadelphia (or ricotta, or cottage cheese)
2 tbsp pine nuts*
1 tsp chilli powder or paprika (depending on your spice taste)**
3 tbsp flat-leaf parsley, chopped***
Salt and freshly ground black pepper****
2 chicken breasts, butterflied
6 slices Parma ham*****
1 tsp olive oil

My minor amendments :
*KP salted peanuts
**Chilli Flakes
***3 sprigs of fresh basil
****just pepper as peanuts were salted
*****you won't find any posh Parma Ham in this house...Bernard Matthews Turkey Ham is far superior!

I whizzed the peanuts,cream cheese, chilli flakes,pepper & basil together in a blender, splodged it onto the chicken breast & wrapped it all in the turkey ham, refrigerated for an hour, fried them off in the olive oil & baked for around 30 minutes and voila .......


Keith commented that, after making this dish, 'Your partner will love you forever'. I've lost track of the number of times he's said 'that chicken was beautiful' tonight so thank you Keith, no more boring midweek meals for us.


  1. You have done me proud, and some. That looks magnificent. Not so crazy, really! Flattered and honoured you did this. Ayethangyew x

  2. why have inspired me Mr Keith! If it were not for you it would've been Pizza tonight.....and a frozen one at that! x

  3. Hee hee I love this so funny:) and your adjustments to the recipe are fab. So your luck might be n tonight then?? Lol x

  4. No No Noooooooo!!! x

  5. That does look scrummy, and that from a vegetarian!

  6. that sounds lovely,

    lord I wish I could cook!

  7. oooh, yummy scrummy!! another thing on my list to try out! x

  8. Wow this looks great- I am cooking this very dish myself tonight, after being inspired by Keith last week too- I will post the results as well, fingers crossed it will work as never made stuffed chicken breast before (so far am having a bit of a broken-parma ham crisis- will see how it pans out!!). It is saving my other half from the ususal Monday night risotto/ leftovers from roast dinner, and am hoping he will love the results....

  9. I look forward to seeing your results too! I wouldn't worry about the broken parma ham, if I can do it with small round slices of turkey ham then some patched up parma will be no problem! I'm sure your husband will love it too - mine certainly did. Good luck ...

  10. You were right- it didn't matter too much as I patched it up it was delicious- will definitely make it again! I have also displayed your cooking with your toddler badge in my blog- is there a set day of the week when you link or can I add as and when :) x

  11. oooh, thanks I will go & look now.....
    I usually do a cooking with your toddler post every Friday but you can link up whenever, it's ongoing. There are quite a few now so I may separate into sweet & savoury linkys. feel free to add & thanks for adding the badge. x
