  5. Once the skin is crispy, add your tomatoes and serrano ham to the pan, using foil to create small trays.
  6. Now place the pan in a pre-heated oven for 12-15 minutes at 180°C.
  7. Next add the linguine to the pan of water, and simmer until cooked.
  8. Take the pan out of the oven and place the chicken, tomatoes and ham to one side.
  9. Place your pesto and crème fraîche into a clean pan and mix.
  10. Now add the linguine, tomatoes and the remaining parmesan cheese, grated.
  11. Finally, slice the chicken thighs and serve on top of a bed of linguine, tomatoes and serrano ham.
  12. Finish with a sprinkle of pine nuts and a drizzle of balsamic glaze.
