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


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Serve with baby carrots and wild rice timbale
