Ingredients

  • 6 garlic cloves, 2 peeled
  • small bunch flat-leaf parsley
  • 85g fresh breadcrumbs
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 4 tbsp garlic & herb soft cheese
  • 4 tsp olive oil

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the 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.

  • STEP 2

    Cut a slit (roughly thumb-length) in the side of each chicken breast, at the plump end. Spoon a quarter 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.

  • STEP 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.
