  • 3 large chicken breasts
  • 1 large fresh on-the-vine tomato
  • 1 ball fresh mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup parmesan, freshly grated
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup fresh pesto
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • salad of your choice, for serving
  • fresh basil leaves


  1. Lay your chicken breast on a chopping board and slice 6 times at an angle, almost (but not all) all the way through.
  2. Stuff each slit alternately with mozzarella and tomato. Pop a basil leaf in each slit alongside its filling.
  3. Pour your cream into a baking dish and add your parmesan and pesto. Lay in each of your chicken breasts, season with salt and pepper then bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 75°C.
  4. Serve with salad. Get stuck in!
  5. Enjoy!
