Mustard Pear Stuffed Chicken Breast

Mustard pear chook 1 1

Step 1: Preheat a fan forced oven to 200C.

Step 2: Place the mustard pears, butter and parsley into a mixing bowl and combine well.

Step 3: To stuff the breast, gently place your finger between the skin and the flesh to create a pocket, divide the pear mixture in half, then using your fingers or a teaspoon, stuff the mixture under the skin. Repeat with the second breast, then season well with a good pinch of salt.

Step 4: Place a medium non-stick pan over a high heat, pour in the olive oil, then place the breast, skin side down, into the pan and fry for 5 minutes or until golden brown.

Step 5: Transfer to a baking tray and place into the preheated oven to bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to rest for 8 minutes, then carve into large slices and serve with garden greens or bitter salad leaves.
