Chicken filled with mozzarella and sun-dried tomatoes

Method

For the chicken

  • Preheat oven over 180°C (356* F) set to Fan.
  • Using a sharp knife, make a little pouch on the large and chunky side of each breast. Be careful not to cut it through.
  • Brush 2 tablespoons of sundried tomato oil on the fillets.
  • In a small bowl, mix the salt, pepper, oregano and thyme. Sprinkle the fillets.

For the filling

  • Thinly slice the tomato, slice the mozzarella and cut the sundried tomatoes into stripes.
  • Carefully open the chicken fillets. Place a layer of sundried tomato strips and then add the mozzarella slices one next to the other. On top, place the tomato slices and cover with basil leaves. Close any openings using toothpicks.
  • Place the pan over heat. The pan should not have a plastic handle so it can be placed inside the oven later. When the pan is hot enough, add 2 tablespoons sundried tomato oil or simple olive oil.
  • Sauté the fillets for 2 minutes on each side, until golden.
  • Finely chop the garlic and place on a bowl. Add the vinegar and brown sugar to the bowl.
  • Transfer the mixture to the baking pan that has the chicken. continue sautéing for 2-3 minutes until the sauce starts to thicken.
  • Transfer the pan to the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes or until the chicken is done or the cheese melts.
  • Remove from oven and serve with the rocket leaves.
