    Monday to Friday, 7 - 10am

    Marty Recommends this week

    Heavily influenced by Burt Bacharach and blessed with effortless velvet-smooth vocals, Anglo-Pakistani singer/songwriter Rumer harks back to the early-'70s easy listening sounds of Karen Carpenter and Carole King. Born in 1979 to British parents living in Islamabad, Rumer (real name Sarah Joyce) was the youngest of seven children, and spent her early years living in an expat community.

    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.
