” Simple and Delicious – But Not With Much Ingredients “
|Chicken breast 2X 220g
Mushroom- 200g sliced
Garlic- 4 cloves finely minced
Thyme- 1 tap chopped
Olive oil 1 Tbsp
Baby spinach 200g
Salt 1 Tbsp
Pepper 1 Tbsp
Sauté mushroom and spinach with butter and thyme
Cut pocket slits – cut pocket in chicken breast, not to cut all the way though, cut the side where the meat has a fold, not the smooth side.
Season chicken- the chicken including inside a pocket with salt pepper. You can season with anything you like.
Stuff generously with the mushroom and spinach thyme then stuff in a cheese slice.
Seal – with two or 3 toothpicks, it will be stuffed too much to seal completely and that’s ok, the purpose here is just to keep it closed.
Preheat the oven to 200C.
Take a dry pan and with olive oil. Sear the chicken breast on each side for two minutes until golden.
Transfer to the oven tray and bake for 15 minutes or till the internal temperature of chicken reaches 75C.
Rest for 5 minutes and serve.
