French Tarragon Chicken Wrapped in Prosciutto

The crispy saltiness of the prosciutto is a wonderful contrast with the tender chicken - along with a lemony tang and peppery tarragon. This is a great dinner party recipe - the cream sauce is an indulgence that makes this dish special, and it is is so easy to prepare.  You can roll the chicken in advance and later cook it on the spot in large batches. The sauce is also quick to whip up.

"While working in French wine bars during university, I came across this treasure – so easy to create and absolutely delicious – enjoy!!"- Jane Beaven.
