Pre-heat oven to 180ºC. In a baking dish, mix together oil, oregano, garlic, basil, salt and pepper. Toss the chicken breasts in the oil and coat well. Cover with foil and bake for 22-25 minutes until cooked through.

Remove from the oven, drain some of the juices and shred the chicken. Transfer the chicken to a bowl and add the cheeses, cream and parsley and mix to combine.

Cut the crusts off each slice of bread. Add some of the chicken mixtures into the centre of half of the slices of bread.

Fry in oil heated to 170ºC until golden brown.

Meanwhile, mix together grated parmesan, parsley, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Toss the fried parcels in the mixture, keep warm.

Heat olive oil in a pot over medium heat. Add smashed garlic and cook until light golden brown, then remove. Add the passata and seasonings. Bring to a simmer and let cook for a few minutes until thickened.

Serve pockets with a tomato sauce to dip.

As an adult, she trained in restaurants before heading to culinary school, where she mastered the basics of French cooking, baking and pastry – her biggest passion today. She might have fine dining training, but Tara still has simple taste...she’d eat chicken nuggets every day if she could. When she’s not experimenting in the kitchen, you can find Tara try to work out, reading cookbooks and finding new hobbies besides food.
