Chicken breasts are frequently on offer and are therefore affordable. Here is a recipe that makes them look rather special , like a butterfly!
Cooks Know How: Using a knife to cut chicken breast and then shaping them to trap some flavouring shows skill and creativity. It is one way to make a simple choice of meat look exciting.
Cooking the chicken in some stock gently poaches it and leaves the meat tender and pale. The colour of the fillings therefore needs to be bright. Keep everything clean and only use a meat chopping board when cutting the chicken breast.
This chicken can be served hot or cold.
Select some differing fillings such as green olives and black olives, fat red or green chillies with their seeds removed. Serve with new potatoes and crunchy green salad.
