For the filling:

To serve:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas mark 6.
  2. Add all the filling ingredients to a food processor and blend into a paste.
  3. Cut an incision horizontally into the centre of each chicken breast to create a small pocket. Fill the chicken breasts with the filling mixture and seal closed using a few cocktail sticks. Season the skin of the chicken breasts with salt. Any leftover filling can be used as a mezze dip.
  4. Add the oil to an oven-proof pan on medium heat. When the pan is hot, add the chicken, skin-side down, and cook for five minutes until seared a nice golden brown colour. Carefully, turn over the chicken breasts, transfer the pan to the oven and cook for 20-25 minutes until cooked through.
  5. Remove the chicken from the oven and allow to rest for a few minutes. Remove the cocktail sticks and serve with your favourite green salad.
