  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 500g/1.1 lbs)
  • 200g (7oz) ricotta cheese
  • 200g (7oz) marinara sauce
  • 100g (3.5oz) shredded mozzarella cheese

Method of Preparation

  1. Preheat your oven to 200°C (400°F). Lightly grease a baking dish.
  2. Using a sharp knife, carefully cut a pocket into each chicken breast without cutting all the way through.
  3. In a bowl, mix the ricotta cheese with a pinch of salt and pepper. Spoon an equal amount of the ricotta mixture into each chicken breast pocket.
  4. Place the stuffed chicken breasts in the baking dish. Spoon the marinara sauce over the top of each chicken breast.
  5. Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese evenly over the marinara sauce.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the cheese is melted and bubbly.

Tips for Culinary Success

  • Use a meat thermometer to ensure the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 75°C (165°F) for safe consumption.
  • Customize the stuffing by adding spinach or basil to the ricotta mixture for added flavor.
  • Serve with a side of garlic bread or a fresh salad for a complete meal.
