Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 15-20 minutes
Free range chicken breast stuffed with Lemnos Smooth Fetta, black pepper and green herbs baked or BBQed and served with a fresh mix of beans, peas and sugar snap peas. Wonderful as a tasty family mid week dinner, or to serve at a dinner party.
4 medium size free-range chicken breasts
180g Lemnos Smooth Fetta loosely chopped
2 tbs ricotta
2 tbs flat leaved parsley chopped
1 tbs of fresh basil chopped
1 tbs of lemon rind cut in fine strips
sprigs of thyme
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
extra virgin olive oil
Preheat oven to 180°C. Or BBQ to medium low heat.
In a medium bowl add chopped Lemnos Smooth Fetta and ricotta, use a fork to mix till smooth. Add parsley, basil, half the lemon rind and thoroughly combine with the fetta mix. Season to taste. Place the chicken breasts on a board and trim off any fat. Cut a deep pocket into the centre of each breast and fill with about a heaped tablespoon of the fetta mix. This is made easy if you use a piping bag.
Pour a little extra virgin olive oil into an ovenproof dish (or metal dish if using a BBQ) big enough to fit the chicken. Place the filled chicken breasts in the dish then drizzle with a little more olive oil, sprinkle with the remaining lemon rind, thyme sprigs, salt and pepper. Bake for about 15-20 minutes until the chicken is cooked right through. Serve with a mix of your favourite green vegetables or a fresh green salad.
