Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Whizz together the 2 peeled garlic cloves, parsley and 1 tsp olive oil in a food processor. Add the breadcrumbs and seasoning before pulsing briefly to mix. Tip onto a plate.
  2. Cut a slit (roughly thumb-length) in the side of each chicken breast, at the plump end. Spoon ¼ of the soft cheese into each hole and press the edges together to seal. Rub 2 tsp oil over all the chicken breasts before pressing the herby crumbs onto them.
  3. Place the coated chicken in a shallow roasting tin. Scatter round the remaining unpeeled garlic cloves and drizzle with the rest of the oil. Bake for 20-25 mins until the chicken is cooked and crumbs crisp and golden. Squeeze out the soft, roasted garlic from the skins and serve with the chicken.

this was easy to make and really tasty. i found the thick cheese filling still ouzed out, but the flavour did give the chicken a garlic flavour right the way through. i will make again but i think i'll try just a garlic butter filling

Have made this twice so far, and will definitely make again in the future. The first time I did it, I didn't have any fresh parsley, so used some dried mixed herbs and they tasted just as good.

Excellent easy and tasty recipe.

Very easy to make and the family loved it. Didn't bother with the extra garlic cloves. Served it with minted new potatoes and mixed salad.

Delicious! I served it with a green salad and I am tempted to make it again on Sunday.
