Ingredients
  • 1 whole boneless chicken breast with skin (about 1 pound), halved
  • 2 sticks of Saga Blue (each 2 by 1/2 by 1/2-inch)
  • 2 thin slices of cooked ham (each 4 by 4 inches)
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
Directions
  • Insert a sharp knife into the thicker end of each chicken breast half and cut a lengthwise pocket carefully, making it as wide as possible without puncturing the sides. Wrap each stick of Saga Blue in a ham slice, enclosing it, insert the packages in the chicken pockets, and seal each opening well with a wooden pick.

  • In a small saucepan bring the Worcestershire sauce and the lemon juice just to a simmer, remove the pan from the heat, and swirl in the butter. Grill the chicken, seasoned with salt and pepper, on an oiled rack set about 6 inches over glowing coals, basting it frequently with the sauce, for 12 minutes on each side. (Do not baste the chicken during the last 2 minutes of grilling, and discard any unused sauce.

  • Serve with baby carrots and wild rice timbale
