  • Pre-heat the oven to 180°C, 350°F, Gas Mark 4. Cut a slit into the side of each chicken breast to form a pocket and then open out to form a butterfly.

  • In a bowl mix together the butter and Perfect Shake Garlic Italian Special Blend. Spread the butter mixture inside the opened chicken breast and roll back up.

  • Wrap 2 slices of ham around each chicken breast and secure with a cocktail stick. Place the chicken breasts in a small ovenproof dish and pour over the chicken stock.

  • Cover with foil and bake for 35 minutes or until cooked through, removing the foil for the last 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, boil the lentils in unsalted water for 15-20 minutes. Drain and return to the pan. Toss with the oil and Herbes de Provence. Spoon onto plates. Place the chicken on top and drizzle over the cooking juices.

  • Serve with grilled, halved tomatoes.
