  4. Put a spoon of mascarpone and place the ham slice and close it with a toothpick.
  5. Repeat with all the chicken breasts. Keep aside.

  6. For the sauce:
  7. In a pan melt the oil and butter, add the wine, chicken stock and lemon juice.
  8. Throw in the chilly flakes, season with salt and let it simmer while the chicken is being cooked.
  9. You can cook the chicken in the oven at 200 degree Celsius for about 10-12 minutes or until cooked or over a pan or on a barbecue, pour a spoon of sauce and serve.
