Chicken Breast stuffed with Olives, Sage & Walnuts


4 organic or free range chicken breasts, skinless and boneless

150g Kalamata olives, pitted

1 garlic clove

15g fresh sage leaves

100g walnut halves

4 tablespoons mild or medium (not extra virgin) olive oil plus a little extra

Freshly ground black pepper


Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas mark 4.   Rub a little oil over the base of a roasting tin.

Carefully cut a slit in the side of each chicken breast to create a pocket.

Blend, or finely chop and mix together, the olives, garlic, sage, walnuts and oil until fairly smooth.

Stuff each chicken breast with the olive mixture.   Rub the excess over the top of each chicken breast and place them in the roasting tin.

Put the roasting tin on a baking tray and cook for around 20-25 minutes or until the meat juices run clear.

Sprinkle with black pepper before serving.

Can be made in advance – the chicken can be stuffed and kept in the fridge or cooked and served cold.
