½ cup flat-leaf parsley leaves, finely chopped
2 tbsp finely chopped chives
16 thin slices pancetta
4 chicken breast fillets
2 tbsp olive oil
1kg small new potatoes, scrubbed
125g sweet baby corn
1 Preheat oven to 180°C. Combine cheese and half the parsley and chives in a bowl. Place 4 pancetta slices onto a chopping board, forming a square shape. Cut a chicken breast through the centre and open out flat. Place onto pancetta. Sprinkle ¼ cheese mixture onto chicken. Roll chicken and pancetta, enclosing filling. Secure with kitchen twine. Repeat with remaining pancetta, chicken and filling.
