Stuffed Chicken with Sundried Tomatoes
- 2 chicken boneless breasts approx 200g each
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon grounded black pepper
- ½ teaspoon ginger powder
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2-3 garlic cloves thinly sliced
FOR THE STUFFING
- ½ cup Gouda cheese
- ½ cup sundried tomatoes sliced
- few leaves of baby spinach
- ½ teaspoon dried basil optional
- Slice each chicken breast in the middle but don’t cut all the way through. It should look like a pocket.
- Mix together salt, black pepper, ginger garlic powder and olive oil. Slather this all over the outside and inside of the chicken breasts. Leave for at least 30 mins.
- Open the chicken and place some Gouda cheese first, then add sundried tomatoes and finally add some baby spinach. Sprinkle some dried basil leaves on top (optional) and then seal with two toothpicks (each breast) threaded along the edges of the chicken. This will prevent the stuffing from falling out.
- Heat some olive oil in a pan, put the chicken and cook each side for approximately 5-8 mins. Cover the pan in between.
- When the chicken is almost cooked add the garlic cloves to the oil and let them roast. Take a spoon and pour that oil on the chicken to infuse it with the garlic flavour and also to give it colour.
- Take out the chicken and let rest for a few mins before serving.
- Top with some more fresh baby spinach, sundried tomatoes and serve with a side of grilled vegetables.
- If you are buying dried sundried tomatoes rather than the ones packed in oil you’ll need to rehydrate them. Before using put them in a microwave-safe bowl and add some salt. Microwave for 2 mins and let sit for an hour till they are soft. Use them straightway or leave them in olive oil for a couple of hours and add some oregano. The oil can be later used to flavour any dish or in your normal cooking procedure.
