Parmesan Chicken Breasts with Crispy Posh Ham by Jamie Oliver

30g Parmesan cheese

2 sprigs of fresh thyme

2 skinless chicken breasts

ground black pepper

1 lemon

6 slices of prosciutto

olive oil

Chicken prep

Grate the parmesan and pick the thyme leaves off your stalks. Carefully score the underside of the chicken breasts in a criss-cross fashion.

Season with a little pepper, and sprinkle with the thyme leaves. Grate some lemon zest over the top.

Sprinkle with the parmesan cheese. Lay 2 or 3 prosciutto slices on each breast and drizzle with a little olive oil.

Put some clingfilm over the breasts and bash them until they are about 1cm thick. Kyla really got into the bashing!

To Cook

Heat pan to a medium heat. carefully transfer the chicken breasts into the pan, prosciutto side down. Drizzle over some olive oil. Cook for 3-5 minutes on each side.

Rog didn't skip a beat with this one...Jamie Oliver! Lol. He enjoyed it a lot, but found the lemon a bit different for his palate. Thus far it's his second favourite. One more night to go, and he's trying to convince us we need to do another week.

The Word Party

Loving words clutch crimson roses,
Rude words sniff and pick their noses,
Sly words come dressed as foxes,
Short words stand on cardboard boxes,
Common words tell jokes and gabble,
Complicated words play Scrabble,
Swear words stamp around and shout,
Hard words stare eachother out,
Foreign words look lost and shrug,
Careless words trip on the rug,
Long words slouch with stooping shoulders,
Code words carry secret folders,
Silly words flick rubber bands,
Hyphenated words hold hands,
Strong words show off, bending metal,
Sweet words call each other 'petal',
Small words yawn and suck their thumbs,
Till at last the morning comes,
Kind words give out farewell posies....
Snap! The dictionary closes.
