(Serves 3)
3 medium chicken breasts
½ a lemon
a large handful of fresh parsley
3 cloves of garlic
1 tablespoon olive oil
½ teaspoon salt
freshly ground pepper
3 cocktail sticks


Remove the peel from the lemon and dice the flesh into small pieces. Finely slice the garlic, chop the parsley and mix in a bowl with the lemon, salt and pepper.
  Step 1


Step 2  
Carefully slice each of the chicken breasts length ways to create a small pocket. Try not to slice all the way through so the pocket can be sealed up once the lemon has been put inside.


Stuff each of the breasts with a generous helping of the lemon mixture then seal the pocket with a cocktail stick.

Place the breasts in an oven proof dish, cover with foil and cook for 30 minutes at 190 degrees C/380 degrees F/Gas Mark 5. Then remove the foil and cook for a further 5 minute to allow the breasts to brown off. Serve with a crisp salad.
