Today’s recipe is ideal for the lunch box that you will get tomorrow at work or for the children’s lunch! Melted DODONI ”TouTost” Cheese with basil pesto is an ideal combination and a craving alternative to roasted chicken! You will only need a minimum of time to prepare it.

Tip: I always chicken thighs fillet because it is juicy and does not lose its moisture even the next day!


  • 4 chicken leg fillets
  • 4 slices smoked ham steak
  • 3 tablespoons basil pesto
  • 3 tablespoons basil pesto
  • Extra virgin olive oil for the pan and chicken


  • Wash well the fillets and cut them in the middle by doing a vertical cut in order to put the stuffing.
  • Cover with a little olive oil the pan that you will use.
  • Cut the tomatoes in half.
  • Preheat the oven to 170°C.
  • Wrap two slices of DODONI TouTost cheese with a slice of smoked ham and put it in the chicken fillet.
  • Put the stuffed fillets in the pan that you have prepared. Add salt and pepper as desired and then cover the fillets with some olive oil. The pesto is already salty so you do not need to add too much salt.
  • Bake at 170°C for 45 minutes.
  • At 30 minutes remove the pan from the oven, cover fillets with basil pesto and top up the cherry tomatoes.
  • Continue baking for another 15 minutes and serve.
