Caprase Chicken with Garlic and Rosemary potatoes

I have had enough of Winter warmers this week and am craving something fresher and lighter.

Caprese salad, in the colours of the Italian flag, an amazing mix of mozzarella, tomato and Basil, Stuffed into Chicken breasts.


Okay, this is basically Chicken and Chips, but uses some bits and pieces I,ve got in the fridge, and gets rid of another package from the freezer.


I am taking 2 chicken breasts, each of them slashed through 3/4 of the way about 4 or 5 times, place on an oven tray.


Take some sun blushed tomatoes, mozzarella and fresh basil, the fresh herbs from Aldi are such good value and so fresh, slide a piece of each into each ‘slot’ in the chicken, drizzle the breasts in olive oil, season with salt and pepper. Into a preheated oven (180) for 20/30 minutes till cooked through and bubbling hot.


I have par boiled some salad potatoes, then quarter them toss in olive oil, crushed garlic, Rosemary, salt and pepper and fry till golden and crispy.

Doesn’t look as good as I’d hoped due to melted mozzarella but tasted lush

I am serving with a Rocket salad with a Raspberry Vinscotto dressing (Raspberry Balsamic)

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
