Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 200˚C/400˚F/Gas Mark 6. Melt the butter and fold in the breadcrumbs, spinach, lemon rind, garlic, pine nuts and parsley, then sprinkle on top of the chicken breasts, giving them a gentle press down.
  2. Using a sharp knife, cut a slit into the side of each chicken breast and use your fingers to make a little pocket.
  3. Spoon the breadcrumb mixture into the four breasts pockets, wrap with prosciutto and arrange in a baking tin. Add the cherry tomato vines and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Roast for 20-25 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and golden and the cherry tomatoes are just beginning to char and split. Serve with a simple side salad or herby cous cous.
