- 4 small boneless and skinless chicken breasts
- 2 tablespoons garlic flavoured tomato paste
- 1/2 cup fresh mozzarella cheese balls , sliced
- 1/4 cup chopped shallots/scallions
- 1 tomato , diced
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped basil
- Pinch of salt
- Cooking oil spray
Combine mozzarella, shallots/scallions, tomatoes and basil in a small bowl.
Cut a horizontal opening along the front, long edge middle of each chicken breast, nearly through to the opposite side, to open like a book.
Spread the breasts with 2 teaspoons each of tomato paste. Divide the margarita cheese mix into 4 and place it in the center of each breast.
Close the breast over the filling, and secure the edges with a couple of toothpicks either side. Sprinkle the breasts with salt to season.
Heat oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook until browned on one side (about 5 minutes). Turn the chicken over and fry for a further 5 minutes until browned.
Lower heat, cover pan and allow to cook until cooked through.
