Method

  • Step 1

    Start by laying out your butterflied chicken breasts on a large work area. With the inside facing up, lay 2 slices prosciutto on each chicken breast. Take a small bundle of asparagus (about 5 standard asparagus or 3 jumbo asparagus) and place on top of the prosciutto, towards one side of the chicken breasts. Place sundried tomatoes on the 3 chicken breasts. Divide mozzarella (75g) between the 3 breasts. Season each with salt and pepper.

  • Step 2

    Working one at a time, hold the asparagus in place with your fingers, then roll the chicken over the asparagus and other fillings. Repeat with remaining chicken breasts. Use cocktail sticks to secure the stuffed breasts.

  • Step 3

    Insert crisper plate in pan and pan in unit. Preheat unit by selecting AIR FRY, setting temperature to 200°C and setting time to 3 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin.

  • Step 4

    Once unit is preheated, add stuffed chicken to the crisper plate. Spray each with cooking spray.

  • Step 5

    Select AIR FRY, set temperature to 200°C and set time to 26 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin.

  • Step 6

    After 12 minutes, remove pan and rotate chicken. Reinsert pan to resume cooking.

  • Step 7

    In the last 2 minutes, remove pan and top chicken with remaining mozzarella. Reinsert pan to resume cooking.

  • Step 8

    When cooking is complete, allow chicken to rest for 5 minutes before serving.

    TIP If you do not know how to butterfly chicken yourself, you can ask your butcher to do it for you.
