Ingredients

Garlic

2 clove(s), crushed

Parsley, fresh

3 teaspoons, finely chopped

Medium fat soft cheese

75 g

Chicken breast, skinless, raw

500 g, (4 x 125g breasts)

Egg, whole, raw

1 medium, raw

Skimmed Milk

1 tablespoons

Breadcrumbs, fresh

75 g

Calorie controlled cooking spray

5 spray(s)

Lemon(s)

1 medium, wedges to serve

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas mark 6.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the garlic and parsley with the soft cheese. Cut a deep pocket in each chicken breast, taking care not to cut right through, then stuff the soft cheese mixture inside, closing the flesh around the stuffing as far as possible.
  3. Beat the egg with the milk in a shallow dish, and spread the breadcrumbs out on a plate.
  4. Dip each chicken breast first in the egg mixture and then in crumbs to coat all over. Place on a nonstick baking tray and spray with the cooking spray. Bake for 20 minutes until crisp and cooked through.
  5. Serve with steamed green veg, such as Tenderstem broccoli and a lemon wedge.
