Herby Garlic Baked Chicken

Using flavoured cream cheese is quick, easy, and adds masses of flavour. For even more convenience I used the individual packs of Boursin herb and garlic cheese which would equate to about two tablespoons per chicken fillet.

For 4 people

Herby Garlic Baked Chicken Directions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees C
  2. 1. Using the point of a sharp knife, cut a slit through the plump side of the chicken breast - you are creating a pocket, so be careful not to cut right through. Pack this with the herb and garlic cheese.
  3. 2. Wrap a slice of Serrano ham around each fillet, place on an oven tray and bake for 25 - 30 minutes until the centre of the chicken is properly cooked.
