This makes a great meal for the whole family but can also be served as a snack if you cut the breasts into slices once they have cooled down.

Method

 
Make a short cut into the side of each chicken breast. Be careful not to cut it right through.

Combine the mozzarella, sun-dried tomatoes and rocket. Fill the chicken breasts and close the openings with cocktail sticks.

Rub the chicken breasts thoroughly with olive oil and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan and fry the breasts over a medium heat until golden brown on both sides. Arrange the breasts in a greased oven dish and bake them at 180°C for 20 minutes or until cooked.

Tip of the day

 
Carving meat
Always allow your roast to rest for 5 to 15 minutes before carving so that the juices can be reabsorbed and the meat presents an even surface when sliced. Use a short- or long-bladed knife, and a two-pronged carving fork with a guard. To prevent the meat from losing juice, steady it with the flat of the fork, rather than piercing.
