Nevens Recipes - Pesto Stuffed Chicken Breast

Nevens Recipes - Pesto Stuffed Chicken Breast

Pesto-stuffed Chicken Breasts with Rustic Mixed Potatoes

Serves 4


125g (4 ½oz) ball of mozzarella,

torn into small pieces

4 tbsp basil pesto

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast fillets

8 cherry tomatoes, halved

8 smoked streaky bacon rashers, rinds removed

sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

steamed French green beans, to serve

 

Rustic mixed potatoes:

450g (1lb) Rooster potatoes, scrubbed

225g (8oz) sweet potatoes, scrubbed

3 garlic cloves, lightly crushed (skin still on)

1 fresh rosemary sprig, broken into tiny

sprigs

sea salt flakes

2 tbsp olive oil

Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F/gas mark 6).

Mix together the mozzarella and pesto. Cut a slit into the side of each chicken breast and then

stuff with the pesto-covered cheese. Place 2 halved cherry tomatoes in each breast. Wrap each stuffed chicken breast with 2 bacon rashers – not too tightly, but enough to hold the chicken together. Season with salt and pepper.

 

To make the rustic mixed potatoes, cut the potatoes and sweet potatoes into 5mm (¼in) slices

– a Japanese mandolin is perfect for doing this – and arrange in a single layer on a large roasting tray lined with parchment paper. Add the garlic and rosemary and season with salt. Drizzle over the oil and toss until evenly coated.

Nestle the pesto-stuffed chicken breasts in the potatoes and roast for 20–25 minutes, until the

chicken is cooked through and the bacon is crispy. Remove the chicken from the oven and rest in a warm place for 5 minutes. Return the potatoes to the oven in that time for a final crisp-up.

To serve, arrange the pesto-stuffed chicken breasts on warmed serving plates with steamed

French green beans and the rustic mixed potatoes.
