I always remember having these as a kid, so deliciously tender, with melted cheese pouring out as you cut into it…yummy!

Cooking Time: 1h 20 – Serves: 4

  • 2 chicken Breast Fillets
  • Smoked Ham
  • Mature cheddar cheese
  • Breadcrumbs
  • Flour
  • 2 Eggs
  • Parsley
  • 1 Garlic Clove

Preheat oven to 190 °C.

Slice your two chicken breast fillets in half into slightly thinner slices.

Cut a pocket into your chicken breast fillet and fill with cheese and ham.

Sear the chicken in a hot pan so that the outside is just cooked and the inside remains raw. This will ensure that the chicken remains juicy when cooking in the oven.

Remove from the pan onto a plate and allow the chicken to cool. Whilst the chicken cools, finely chop some parsley and the garlic clove and mix this with your beaten eggs. Proceed to bread the chicken by covering with flour, into the egg and into the breadcrumbs.

Place the chicken pieces in an oven dish and cook in the oven for 30 – 45 minutes, until thoroughly cooked and golden.

I boiled some simple white rice to go with it.
