To add a little sweetness and moisture to each chicken breast push a thin slice of banana into the centre.

Serves 4

4 chicken breast fillets

2 small bananas

4 large thin slices prosciutto

3 lemons, cut into pieces

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

2 heads of broccoli, cut into florets

20g butter

1 Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Using a small sharp knife, cut a pocket into each chicken breast fillet. Peel bananas and cut in half lengthways. Insert a piece of banana into each fillet. Wrap a piece of prosciutto loosely around the centre of each fillet.

2 Place chicken on prepared tray. Arrange pieces of lemon around chicken. Drizzle with oil. Sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and lemon is caramelised.

3 Bring a saucepan of water to the 
boil. Add broccoli and simmer for 5 minutes or until tender. Drain. Return to pan. Add butter and toss until melted. Serve chicken with lemon and broccoli.
