In a pan heat the sunflower oil and fry the bacon until brown and crispy. Add the walnuts, salt and peeper and continue to saute on a gentle heat for approx. 5 minutes. Set aside and allow to cool.

In a bowl mix together the flour and baking powder, add the eggs and beat well with an electric beater. Gently drizzle the oils and warm milk into the batter, beating continuously. Fold in the Gruyere cheese.

Crumble the Roquefort cheese over the bacon and walnut mixture. Mix and then add to the batter. Fold together gently.

Roquefort and Parma Ham Chicken

I love this receipt as it's really easy to make and it's really impressive. As long as you feed it to people who like blue cheese (and are obviously not veggies) it's bound to be a big hit.

Serves 4
Preparation time 15 minutes
Cooking time 40 minutes

Ingredients

4 Skinned chicken breasts

400 g Crème Fraiche (Low fat one optional)

Standard packet of Roquefort (Gorgonzola or dolcelatte if you prefer)

Parma Ham (Prociutto Crudo) 4 Slices

Black Pepper

Preparation

Pre Heat Oven to 200c

-Take the four chicken breasts and cut little pockets through the sides with a sharp knife.

-Fill the pockets with small pieces of the cheese using about a quarter of the packet in total to stuff the chicken.

-Take each chicken breast and wrap it in a slice of parma ham

-Place the four chicken breasts in an over proof casserarole

-Take the Crème Fraiche and tip it in the dish covering the chicken. Gind some black pepper to taste

-Crumble left over Roquefort over entire dish

-Cover with foil.

-Leave to cook for 20 minutes, then stir sauce making sure cheese in well mixed in (also the Crème Fraiche sometimes goes a bit watery at this point, don't be put off as a quick stir will return it to it's creamy consistency). Leave for another 10 minutes, then remove foil and cook for further 10-15 minutes until slightly browned.

I serve this with potatoes and veg, but it's also nice with salad and french bread to mop up the yummy sauce.

I hope you try this dish and enjoy it as much as me and my family have.
