About this recipe: A lovely dish that doesn't take too much effort to create but looks and tastes great. I attempted this dish a few weeks ago and it went down a storm and I was asked to create it again almost instantly. This dish goes well with chips or wedges and the recipe below is for two people.

Serves: 2 

  • 2 chicken breast fillets
  • cream cheese or cheese spread
  • Cajun spice
  • Ritz crackers

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:50min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
  2. Carefully butterfly both of the chicken breasts. Do this by slicing horizontally into the side of the breast taking care not to cut all the way through. Open the breast out like a book.
  3. Spread the cream cheese down the centre of the chicken breast and then fold the chicken back together.
  4. Use some toothpicks (or skewers) to seal both sides of each chicken breast back together.
  5. Sprinkle the Cajun spice over the chicken breast and gently rub into the chicken.
  6. Place a few Ritz crackers into a blender and proceed to blend them into very small pieces.
  7. Sprinkle the crackers over the chicken breast until the top is completely covered
  8. Place the chicken breast onto an oiled baking tray.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven, remove and discard the toothpicks (or skewers) and enjoy.
