Ricotta and lemon thyme stuffed chicken

This chicken is stuffed with a deliciously creamy and tangy filling, which looks special but is deceptively easy. Serves 4

Ingredients

100g ricotta
1 tsp finely grated lemon rind
1 tsp finely chopped lemon thyme
1 clove garlic, crushed
4 x 120g chicken breast fillets
1 tbsp olive oil

Method

  1. Combine the ricotta, lemon rind, lemon thyme and garlic in a bowl.
  2. Cut a horizontal slit in the side of each breast to form a pocket. Spoon ricotta mixture into the pockets and secure with skewers or tooth picks.
  3. Preheat grill or BBQ to medium-high heat. Coat the chicken with some oil and cook for 5-6 minutes each side until cooked through.
  4. Cover with foil and set aside to rest for 5 minutes before slicing thickly.
  5. Serve with a green salad.
