Ingredients

4 plump free range chicken breasts

175g Cumberland sausage meat

150g Cumbrian air dried ham (Parma or other usual suspect will do)

4 halves of sun dried tomatoes

8 basil leaves

1 tbsp olive oil

Juice of half a lemon

Sea salt flakes and black pepper

500g potatoes grates

1/2 onion, grated

50g melted butter

Method

  1. Take the chicken breast and cut a pocket into it. Skin the sausages and stuff a quarter of the meat into the pocket, then press in two basil leaves and half a sundried tomato.
  2. Season with sea salt flakes and black pepper then place on a couple of pieces of air dried ham. The two sheets of ham should be placed side by side to make a sheet.
  3. Place the stuffed chicken breast onto the edge closest to you. Drizzle some oil on top, season and give it a twist of lemon juice.
  4. Roll the chicken in its ham blanket to form a neat roll. Place in a tin foil parcel. Repeat till you have four lovely tucked up rolls. Seal the parcel shut then bake in a pre heated oven for about 30 minutes.
  5. While this is happening make your rosti. Combine the grated raw onion and potato, season well. Place this in a tea towel and squeeze out all the moisture.
  6. Divide the mixture into four and in a lightly oiled frying pan, pack each quarter into a lightly greased chef's ring.
  7. Cook slowly for about 10 minutes on one side until golden brown then turn over and cook till both sides are golden.
  8. Serve the chicken parcel on a rosti cake and use the juices as gravy. Serve with a simple green salad on the side, with a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar if you wish.
