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


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.

Gardening tips from listeners... winners of Spa Vouchers.

Monday 3rd October 
Ellen Delaney. Fornaught. Donoughmore. Cork
Marty. My gardening tip is to collect as many seeds as possible from your garden or others, ready for 
spring sowing. And marty the Magnificent Seven is the soundtrack to my youth in one channel land. Fabulous . 

Tuesday 4th October
Patrick Hagin-Meade,  Ballinteer, Dublin 16
Good morning Marty . 
My tip is get someone in to do the gardening and go for a good long walk.!


Wednesday 5th October
Eileen Murray. Main St. Baltinglass. Co. Wicklow.
Marty. Always use the water that you have boiled eggs in to water your house plants. They'll do exceptionally well. Try it. 

Thursday 6th October
Helen McMahon 
if you have a flowering dogwood shrub or shrubs (cornus) don't be tempted to prune. just now. leave them flourish and enjoy the light coloured floaty leaves adding colour and light to 
the garden...closer to December prune hard cutting long lengths of the vivid red branches..these branches are bendy and flexible (like your joints after using voltorol!) perfect for weaving into a 
circular shape..weaving the lengths into a plaited wreath add other bits painted pine cones ribbon ivy holly etc makes a perfect seasonal decoration or gift! will dry out but can be used for years.

Friday 7th October
Libby Ireton, Castletroy, Limerick
Marty. My gardening tip is to gather up all those fallen leaves into a black bag {or two} Sprinkle on some water, and tie it securely. Put it in a corner out of sight, and every few weeks shake the bags and turn over. This time next year open the bags and spread the Leaf mould compost on your garden!
