    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Lay the thighs out flat and sprinkle lightly with the pepper.
    2. Slice the mushrooms to about 2mm thick and slice the bacon in 5 to 8mm strips - about the length of the width of the chicken thighs.
    3. To assemble; place two slices of mushroom on one side of the thigh, then place two slices of bacon on top. Thinly slice the cheese and carefully place on top of the bacon.
    4. Fold one half of the thigh over the other then wrap with a slice of prosciutto and hold it with a skewer. Repeat with all thighs.
    5. Place chicken thighs on a baking tray and bake at 180 C / Gas 4 until cooked, about 10-15 minutes. Test with a skewer or knife to see that the juices run clear.

    Cook's note

    This can be also be done in a fry pan but the oven keeps the chicken moister.

    This is such a yummy dish. I brushed the top with olive oil to make the prosciutto crunchy.  -  05 Jul 2012  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
