Ingredients

  • 4 skinless chicken breast (about 1kg)
  • 16 leaves basil
  • 12 sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup goat cheese
  • pinch salt
  • pinch black pepper
  • 4 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 200C/400F.
  • Make an incision in each chicken breast to stuff them later.
  • Stuff each breast with 4 basil leaves, 3 sun-dried tomatoes, and 2 tbsp of goat cheese.
  • Close them with some toothpicks.
  • Add the olive oil to a cast iron skillet and heat.
  • Add the breasts and sprinkle the salt and pepper.
  • Cook each breast 5 minutes on each side to give them a nice golden crispy colour.
  • Add the skillet to the oven and bake for 10 minutes or until a temperature of 65C/150F or more registers on a thermometer inserted in the middle of the breast.
  • Take out of oven and let cool for 10 minutes.
  • Cut the cooled chicken breast into thick slices and serve hot! Serve with some steamed veggies like broccoli or carrots.
