  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Put the chicken breast fillets between 2 sheets of lightly oiled clingfilm and bash with a rolling pin until two-thirds of their original thickness. Make an incision into one side of each breast to form a pocket. 
  2. Spoon the cream cheese into each pocket, then close and wrap with 2 slices Prosciutto, as if wrapping a parcel. Heat the  olive oil in a pan over a medium-high heat. 
  3. Add the chicken seam-side down and fry for 10 mins, turning occasionally, until golden. Transfer to a baking dish and bake for 15 mins until cooked through. Meanwhile, heat the instant mashed potato to pack instructions, then stir through the rest of the cream cheese. 
  4. Stir-fry the sliced spring greens in olive oil for 5 mins. Fold 2 tbsp greens through the mashed potato. Serve the remaining greens with the chicken and mash.
