Method
Italian Stuffed Chicken

Step 01

Heat oven to 220°C.
Step 02
Beat the olives or sundried tomatoes, garlic and almost all the herbs into the cheese.
Step 03
Cut a slit along the side of each chicken breast, then use your knife to open it out into a pocket.
Step 04
Stuff each chicken breast with a quarter of the cheese mix, then press to close. Lift onto a greased baking tray.
Step 05
Season the top of the chicken, then place tomato slices over the top of each piece of chicken. Season, then top with the remaining herbs. Drizzle with some olive oil.
Step 06
Roast until the chicken is golden around the edges, and the tomatoes look a little shrivelled.

You may serve this dish with a green salad and crusty bread to mop up the juices.
