    • 75ml lemon juice
    • 75ml extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
    • 1 teaspoon paprika
    • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
    • 2 (175g) skinless, boneless chicken breast fillets
    • 115g feta cheese, crumbled
    • 6 sun-dried tomatoes, chopped

    Method

    1. Whisk together the lemon juice, extra-virgin olive oil, Italian seasoning, paprika and lemon zest in a bowl. Pound the chicken breasts between sheets of cling film to a thickness of 1cm. Marinate the chicken in the lemon marinade at least 30 minutes. Meanwhile, stir together the feta cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, kalamata olives, and 1 tablespoon of oil in a small bowl; set aside.
    2. Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5.
    3. Remove the chicken from the marinade, shake off excess. Discard the remaining marinade. Divide the stuffing mixture onto each piece of chicken. Fold the edges of the chicken over the filling, and secure with cocktail sticks. Place onto a baking dish, seam-side down and place two roasted pepper strips onto each stuffed breast.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven until the chicken is no longer pink, about 30 minutes. Remember to remove the skewers before serving.
