Chicken, Mozzarella & Prosciutto Parcels

These Chicken, Mozzarella & Prosciutto Parcels are rather yummy and calling them “parcels” makes them a little bit fancy right?

I saw a similar recipe to this in one of the trashy mags (I look at them for research purposes of course!) and thought that I could give my own version a try and here it is, ta dah! For the girls I made theirs smaller, more meatball shaped. Because my fussy one would have objected to yummy oozing cheese I put the mozzarella inside the meatballs instead of on top for her and left off the prosciutto, she ate them right up and even complimented me on them! My Mum taste tested the grown up version and gave them her tick of approval too!

Makes 8 parcels and as a variation you could add any veggies of your choice. I served it with steamed veggies, salad would be nice too.

Do you think calling something “parcels” makes it sound better than “stuffed meatballs”?

    Oh, yummy yummy! To be honest, I’d eat them as parcels or as stuffed meatballs, as long as they looked as delicious as you’ve served them! Do you think they could be made without the breadcrumbs/quinoa flakes, or are they necessary to keep the shape of the mix?

      I think it needs something to bind them a bit but LSA might work if you didn’t want grains or the egg might be enough. I haven’t tried though. Sorry.

    ooh, I like the hidden mushrooms in this recipe. These look just divine and so great as a finger food (if you make small ones) or to have with a salad. mmm

      That’s a good idea, to make small ones too.
