Hasselback Chicken

**Orignal Recipe as taken from Proper Tasty Facebook Page

Here’s What You’ll Need:

Splash of oil

50g Fresh Spinach

50G Ricotta Cheese

2 Chicken Breasts

20g Cheddar Cheese

Paprika

Salt

Pepper

Method: 1.) Cook the spinach on a medium heat in a splash of oil for 3-5 minutes until it is slightly wilted.

2.) Stir in the ricotta and cook for a further 30-60 seconds. Allow to cool.

3.) Cut slits into the chicken breasts about 1cm apart but don’t cut all the way through – about 75% of the way down is what you should aim for, but don’t stress over it.

4.) Stuff all of the spinach and ricotta mixture into the slits.

5.) Season the chicken with salt and pepper.

6.) Grate the cheddar and sprinkle it generously on top.

7.) Shake a good bit of ground paprika over the chicken to add some colour and flavour.

8.) Bake in the centre of a pre-heated oven for 20-25 minutes 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6 until the cheese has melted and the juices are clear.

9.) Have it!

Inner Chef Notes:

This was a great tasting dish. Easy to make!

  • I doubled this recipe to use for 4 chicken breasts.
  • I used Vermont White Cheddar Cheese.
  • I used 50/50 of Smoked Paprika and regular Paprika.
  • I used Whole Milk Ricotta Cheese.
  • I used Olive oil.
  • It took about 45 minutes for my chicken to finish cooking.
