Greek stuffed chicken breast
Method
  • Preheat oven to 190* C (370* F) Fan.
  • Place a deep pan over high heat and add 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil.
  • Coarsely chop the onion, finely chop the garlic and add them to the pan.
  • Add the thyme, chili flakes, salt and pepper.
  • Mix and add the spinach. Sauté for 10 minutes, until the spinach wilts.
  • Remove from heat and add the finely chopped mint and dill.
  • Cut the chicken breasts in half (not all the way), just enough to create a slit that is wide enough to create a pocket.
  • To each slit, add salt, pepper and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Spread the mixture with your hands and make sure you spread it under the skin also.
  • Divide the mixture evenly among each chicken breast opening. Add some metsovone cheese and close the opening by pushing the chicken breasts together (like a sandwich).
  • Transfer to a baking pan and roast for 25 minutes.
  • When ready, remove from oven, drizzle with olive oil and serve with rocket leaves and cherry tomatoes.
