Chicken goujon delights
CHICKEN GOUJONS WRAPPED IN PARMA HAM
Makes 14 Goujons
PREP: 15 MINS COOK: 10 MINS
2 large skinless chicken breasts
7 slices Parma ham
2 tsp runny honey
salt and black pepper
FOR THE SAUCE
200 g (7 oz) crème fraîche
2 tbsp fresh green pesto
Squeeze of lemon juice
Add an extra flavour dimension to chicken goujons by wrapping them in Parma ham. They taste even better dunked into a creamy, zesty sauce, which you can dish up hot or cold. Serve with baked potato or sweet potato wedges.
STEP ONE Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6 and grease a baking tin.
STEP TWO Place the chicken breasts on a board. Cover them with clingfilm, then bash them with a rolling pin until they are slightly thinner. Remove the clingfilm and slice each breast into 7 goujon-shaped strips.
STEP THREE Cut each slice of Parma ham in half. Wrap each goujon in a piece of parma ham, then place on the prepared baking tray. Drizzle over the honey, then roast for 10 minutes, until cooked through and crisp.
STEP FOUR Mix together the crème fraîche, pesto and lemon juice and season. Serve hot (heated through in a small saucepan) or cold with the crisp goujons.
