Chicken with Mediterranean veg

    40 min

    This is the easiest dish to make and always look GREAT! You can use any cheese u like although I find feta really suits the dish. It's very easy to adapt and is a good way to use up any veg that you may have lying around - Goes well with roast spuds or rice.

    • selection of med veg - Peppers, courgettes, garlic, onions, tomatoes

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Make a slice into the chicken breasts (not too deep as you don't want the cheese to go through the chicken) and fill with cheese.
    2. Take the bacon rashers and wrap one around each chicken breast. Secure with 2 cocktail sticks - this helps to contain the cheese.
    3. Slice veg and spread out evenly on a baking tray. Drizzle the veg with olive oil.
    4. Place the chicken on top of the veg and drizzle with olive oil.
    5. Stick the whole lot in the oven 190 C / Gas mark 5 (maybe higher depending upon your oven) and leave for 25 - 30 mins.
    6. After this time the dish will be ready to remove and serve!

    I realised we don't like cheese in chicken. Next time I'll fill it with bacon or onion. Or both! But it tastes great and it is so simple to do! Question: I never know when chicken breast means the whole breast or each half. In this recipe I used I whole breast and it gave two servings.  -  28 Jan 2010


    Altered ingredient amounts. Sorry should be streaky bacon not ordinary rashers - 2 slices per chicken breast works best!  -  09 Jan 2009


    Something else. I added potato wedges on top of the veggies, and some rosemary. I wrapped the chicken in aluminuim foil with some salt and a few veggies and in the last minutes I opened the packet to let the chicken gain a wonderful golden colour. It was very juicy and tasty that way  -  28 Jan 2010
