  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 200°C. Use a small sharp knife to cut a small slit lengthways into the side of each chicken fillet to make a pocket (don’t cut all the way through). Place 2 sage leaves and one-quarter of the cheddar in each pocket. Season chicken. Lay 2 prosciutto slices end to end on a clean work surface. Place 1 piece of chicken at a right angle over 1 end of the prosciutto. Roll up to enclose. Repeat with remaining prosciutto and chicken.
  2. Step 2

    Heat 2 tsp of the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Cook chicken for 2 mins each side or until golden brown. Transfer to a baking tray. Bake for 10 mins or until cooked through. Set aside for 5 mins to rest. Thickly slice.
  3. Step 3

    Meanwhile, combine vinegar, honey, mustard and remaining oil in a screw-top jar. Combine kale, spinach, walnuts, cranberries and apple in a large bowl. Drizzle with dressing. Toss to combine. Divide the salad among serving plates. Top with the chicken.
