I have a yummy and easy recipe for the weekend!
I bought a couple of chicken breasts, I stuffed them with ham, mozzarella, pepper and basil leaves and popped them in the oven... it was such a tasty meal! I loved that melted mozzarella escaping as I was cutting the chicken!
I have been quite busy with my sister Laura... we have been cooking a lot and have been preparing lots of yummy recipes which I am looking forward to sharing in the next couple of weeks. We are not chefs, just two girls who love food so sooo much! My kitchen is in such a state, we have been making 3 recipes in one go today...so I am off to clean everything now.
I love working in a team and I know when she goes back to Italy next week I shall be sad 🙁 I will be missing her loads.
Well, I shall just have to make the most of our time together now and we are indeed having a great time!
- Prep Time : 30 minutes
- Cook Time : 25 minutes
Cut a slit along the side of each chicken breast. Open it out into a pocket with the help of a knife and season it.
Wash the pepper, cut it in half or into quarters (if it is quite large), remove seeds and filaments. Heat up a pan, oil it a little and cook the pepper until soft on both sides. This will take about 10 minutes.
Put a slice of ham, a slice of mozzarella, half of the pepper and a basil leaf inside your chicken breast pocket then press well to close. You can prick it with a toothpick if you are worried that the filling might come out during cooking.
Whisk a egg yolk with a fork then brush it onto the chicken.
Coat it with breadcrumbs and put it on an oiled baking tray or cover it by parchment paper.
Drizzle with olive oil on top
Cook for 20 minutes at 200C or 400F.
