So make sure you experiment with different recipes, and MIX it up a bit 😉

Serves: 4  (just double if you want a bigger batch)

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

4 x 150 gram chicken breast fillets
100 grams of feta, crumbled
1 clove of garlic, crushed
2 tablespoons of olive tapenade
4 large basil leaves, plus extra to serve
Olive oil spray
200 grams of green beans, trimmed
1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar

Instructions

Step 1
Cut a deep pocket into the thickest side of the chicken breasts to create a pocket

Step 2
Combine feta, tapenade and garlic in a bowl. Place a basil leaf in each pocket, then divide the feta mix among the pockets. Secure with a skewer, then lightly speak the chicken pieces with olive oil

Step 3
Heat a non stick frying pan over medium heat and pan fry the chicken for 5 minutes each side or until cooked through (the time can vary, depending on the thickness of the chicken breasts)

Step 4
Meanwhile, blanch the beans in boiling water for 1 – 2 minutes. Drain and toss them with balsamic vinegar ***Please note, you can use raw beans if you prefer..

Step 5
Garnish the chicken with extra basil leaves and serve with green beans and a green salad

***Please note***
To make your own olive tapenade, simply process 1 cup (150 grams) of pitted kalamata olives, 2 chopped anchovy fillets, 1/2 clove of garlic, chopped, 2 tablespoons of rinsed capers and 1 tablespoon of olive oil to a coarse puree. Stir in 2 teaspoons sherry vinegar, to taste. Season with freshly ground black pepper. 

Enjoy!

TIP

*** You could use any of the leftover home-made tapenade as a dip***
