Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Beat the olives or sundried tomatoes, garlic and almost all the herbs into the cheese, then season. Cut a slit along the side of each chicken breast, then use your knife to open it out into a pocket.
  2. Stuff each breast with a quarter of the cheese mix, then press to close. Lift onto a greased baking tray. Season the top of the chicken, then overlap tomato slices over the top of each piece of chicken. Season, then scatter with the remaining herbs. Drizzle with olive oil.
  3. Roast for 20 mins until the chicken is golden around the edges and the tomatoes look a little shrivelled. Serve with a green salad and crusty bread to mop up the juices.

Loved this! Took slightly longer to cook than stated because I cooked for a friend, and we spent longer chatting and drinking wine than concentrating on cooking, but it was worth the wait!! WE both thought delish, and I don't usually like stuff with cheese in!

This was absolutely lovely. I have made it twice and it was better the second time. I certainly will be making it again and it will become a regular dish in my home. Highly recommended

Simple to make, so great for ease, but nothing special taste wise.

Made this today and it was lovely, used flavoured cream cheese as I did not have any olives or sundried tomatoes but was still lovely and full of flavour!

Went down very well with sister, husband and three year old. Would put in a little more garlic for my taste, but is easy and tasty and will definitely do again.

I made this with chopped sundried tomatoes and loads of crushed garlic in with the cream cheese and it was fantastic! Have made it this way loafds of times and everyone raves about it.

Fantastic, cooked this in individual shallow bowls which kept the moisture in so plenty of juice to mop up. I left the chicken skin on and crisped it up and cooked the tomatoes on the side sprinkled with balsamic vinegar - will cook again.

Was tonight's dinner and it went down very well with my boyfriend!
Did have to leave it in for an extra 10 mins from what the recipe says, so 30 mins instead of 20, but otherwise went without a hitch!

Can't wait for Summer to arrive & bring the sunshine- but until then this is sunshine on plate. Crack open a chilled bottle of white, raid the summer wardrobe & with the heating on you could almost imagine you are sitting in the sun with this meal. Cheer up mealtimes more!
