This recipe appears a lot more difficult than it actually is. It is in fact a very simple Italian dish that is great for either a family dinner at the weekend, or to wow your guests at a dinner party.
It combines the contrasting flavours of chicken with prosciutto and cheese, enhanced by the pork and pistachio stuffing.
The only real technical requirement is to find yourself a butcher – any self-respecting butcher will be able to completely debone a chicken at no extra cost. A large chicken will suffice for 6 people. Once the chicken has been deboned it will allow you to lay it out completely flat and then layer the other ingredients, before rolling up into a log form that’s ready to cook.
