Basil Stuffed Chicken
- Chicken boneless - 150gm
- Garlic minced - 2 to 3 cloves
- Egg - 1
- Cheese - 30 gm
- Mayonnaise - 2 tbsp
- Fresh Basil - 15 gm (I have used holy basil)
- Olive oil - 4gm
- Black pepper, salt, oregano
- Ketchup - 2 tbsp
- Spring onion leaves for garnishing
- Parsely/ Coriander leaves - 5gm
Preheat the oven to 200°C and brush the baking dish with olive oil
Using a sharp knife, cut a deep pocket into the side of each chicken breast and pound it so that it flatten down
Season it with touch of salt, black pepper powder, oregano, garlic and remaining olive oil. Rub the seasonings well into the chicken
In a bowl, whisk together egg, cheese (20gm), Basil, parsley, herbs, mayonnaise and black pepper very well
Stuff the mixture equally into each chicken breast pocket and gently place the stuffed breast into the baking dish.
Spoon ketchup evenly over the chicken breasts
Cover with lid or foil it and bake for about 25 - 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through
Grate the remaining cheese over cooked chicken breast and bake uncovered for 2 minutes or until cheese melts.
Top it with either basil leaves or chopped spring onion and enjoy!
