Instructions

Prepare the Chicken and Filling

Preheat the oven to 190°C

Mix the sun dried tomatoes, rosemary, thyme and cheese together in a bowl and set to one side.

Using a sharp paring knife, make a small slit into each chicken breast and fill the cavity with the cheese mixture, then carefully wrap each chicken breast tightly with a slice of ham covering up the pocket

Roast your Chicken

Place the chicken in a roasting dish and place on the lower rack for 25-30 minutes, depending on the size of your chicken breasts. Test with a skewer and if the juices run clear, the chicken is cooked. Turn off the oven.

Pour the juices into a small saucepan then pop the breasts back into the oven to keep warm.

Make the Sauce

To make the sauce, add the butter to the juices in the pan and swirl to incorporate the melting butter. Pass through a sieve back into a clean pan and keep warm until ready to serve with creamy mash or with crushed new potatoes
