    • 1 zucchini, halved lengthwise and cut into 2.5cm slices
    • 1 red onion, cut into 1.5cm thick wedges
    • 2 red capsicums, cut into 2.5cm pieces
    • 12 cherry tomatoes
    • 6 cloves of garlic, crushed
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
    • 1/4 teaspoon crushed chilli flakes

    • 4 slices thinly sliced Parma ham

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:1hour 

    1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C.
    2. Place potatoes, zucchini, onion, capsicums and tomatoes into a large bowl. Add the garlic, thyme and chilli flakes; season to taste with salt and pepper.
    3. Pour in olive oil, then toss until the vegetables are evenly coated with oil. Pour into a baking dish and bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes.
    4. Meanwhile, season the chicken to taste with salt and pepper. Wrap each chicken breast with two slices of ham and secure with toothpicks.
    5. After the vegetables have cooked for 15 minutes, place the wrapped chicken on top of the vegetables, and continue baking until the chicken has cooked and turned opaque, about 30 minutes.
    6. To serve, remove the chicken from the baking dish and allow to rest for 5 minutes.
    7. Divide the roasted vegetables among two dinner plates. Remove tooth picks from chicken, then slice each piece of chicken into five diagonal slices. Fan the chicken out on top of the vegetables.

    Used different ingredients. As previously mentioned, the potatoes take quite a bit longer to cook than the rest of the veggies. I ended up starting them 20 minutes before everything else than adding in the rest of the veggies and chicken. I used Roma tomatoes instead of cherry, much better flavor, tossed 1 spring of fresh rosemary. Next time, I might try bone-in chicken breasts. I've always loved their flavor better than boneless but boneless are easier to serve.  -  29 Sep 2008


    What an easy and yummy meal! I would recommend to bake the potatoes together with the onion and garlic with one additional spoon of olive oil and salt and pepper for the first 10 minutes. Then add the veggies for another 10 minutes and the chicken for 25 minutes.  -  04 Jun 2012


    Used different ingredients. This recipe was so easy and delicious! I added provolone to the chicken and prosicutto wrap which I thought was delicious. You could even make this a good low carb meal by leaving out the potatoes and doubling the zucchini.  -  29 Sep 2008
