Peanut butter and pineapple lend a tropical flavor to a simple chicken breast, and wrapping it in nutty Parma ham not only adds a lovely salty dimension but also smartens the whole thing up fit for the dinner party table.

It’s easy to make in advance and keep in the fridge ready to cook when you’re guests come over. For a really special treat serve with creamy and indulgent dauphinoise potatoes and a side of steamed greens.

    I love having a bowl of pasta with red peppers that were sauteed in olive oil, salt and pepper. The peppers become so sweet but then you get the saltiness to balance it. So yummy!
