Ingredients

  • 2 cups water
  • salt to taste

Method

15 to 20
 
1. Pre-heat oven to 180oC. Boil water with salt in a saucepan. Blanch the cabbage leaves for a minute.
Using a slotted spoon, transfer cabbage leaves to a large bowl of cold water to stop the cooking process, then drain in a colander.
2. Flatten each chicken breast between pieces of plastic wrap.
Place chicken breasts on a piece of foil, shiny side up. 3. Layer cabbage leaves over chicken, spread basil pesto over cabbage, top with sun-dried tomatoes and finish with a layer of cheese.
4. Roll chicken breasts and foil piece lengthways.
Seal by tightly twisting the ends of the foil, like a Christmas cracker.
This will steam the chicken breasts and prevent them from drying out. 5. Place chicken package on a baking tray and bake for 15-20 minutes, until juices run clear.
6.Once cooked, remove from oven, slice and serve with a green salad.
