We've taken the hassle out of stuffing for an easier rolled version of traditional chicken cordeon bleu, which is perfect for busy weeknights. Grilled thinly sliced potatoes make a great alternative to roast potatoes when grilling season is at its peak.

  • Prep time 25 minutes
  • Total time 25 minutes
  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast cutlets (about 450 g total)
  • 4 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 30 g shaved Parmesan cheese
  • 20 large basil leaves
  • 4 slices prosciutto , halved crosswise
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Method

Place chicken between waxed paper or plastic wrap; pound to scant 1/2-inch thickness. Top with mustard, Parmesan, basil, prosciutto and pepper. Roll up chicken, securing ends with small skewers. Brush all over with oil.


Heat 1 burner of 2-burner barbecue or 2 burners of 3-burner barbecue to medium-high heat (about 375°F). Place chicken on rack over lit burner(s); grill, uncovered, turning once, until grill-marked, about 3 minutes.


Transfer to lightly greased small rimmed baking sheet. Place on rack over unlit burner; close lid and grill until juices run clear when chicken is pierced and instant-read thermometer inserted in centres reads 170°F, about 12 minutes. Let rest for 2 minutes; remove skewers.
