Cooking a gourmet-style menu needn’t be a chore with this budget-friendly and simple stuffed chicken breast idea.
Ingredients (serves 6)
- 225g feta, drained
- 3 tbs chopped marinated semi-dried tomatoes (oil reserved)
- 2 tbs chopped basil leaves
- 6 free-range chicken breasts with skin
- 350g Small tomatoes
Preheat oven to 180°C. In a small bowl, mix feta, semi-dried tomatoes and basil together. Season with salt and pepper.
Working from the narrow end of the breast, use your fingers to carefully separate skin from breast to create a pocket. Divide feta mix among breasts, pushing mixture underneath the skin. Place chicken skin-side up in a roasting pan. Rub with reserved oil and season.
Roast in the oven for 20 minutes, then add tomatoes to pan for a further 5 minutes or until chicken is golden and cooked, and tomatoes are softened. Serve with spinach salad.
