Italian Stuffed Chicken

Well here is a recipe idea for some scrumptious Italian Stuffed chicken. You’ll just have to imagine the gondola ride that you would have enjoyed prior to sitting down and enjoying this tasty dish……
Serves 4 (and only 5g carb per serving)
2 tbsp chopped olives or sun-dried tomatoes, whatever you've got
1 garlic clove, crushed
½ tsp dried mixed herbs
200g tub full-fat soft cheese
4 plump boneless, skinless chicken breasts
4 ripe tomatoes, sliced
olive oil, for drizzling
1) Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Beat the olives or sundried tomatoes, garlic and almost all the herbs into the cheese then season. Cut a slit along the side of each chicken breast, then use your knife to open it out into a pocket.
2) Stuff each breast with a quarter of the cheese mix, then press to close. Lift onto a greased baking tray. Season the top of the chicken, then overlap tomato slices over the top of each piece of chicken. Season, then scatter with the remaining herbs. Drizzle with olive oil.
3) Roast for 20 minutes until the chicken is golden around the edges and the tomatoes look a little shrivelled. This could be served with a lovely green salad, or if you’d prefer, how about some fine whole green beans ? The choice is yours.
Perhaps a nice glass of Italian wine would also compliment this meal ?

All the best Jan
