Ingredients

  • 2 skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 vine tomatoes, sliced
  • 75g reduced-fat mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • A handful of fresh basil, torn
  • 1tbsp olive oil
  • 2 shredded wheat, crushed
  • 25g wholemeal breadcrumbs
  • Black pepper
  • 2 eggs, beaten

Serve with:

  • Green salad
  • 2tbsp fat-free French dressing

For a guaranteed hit with kids, use the breadcrumb and shredded wheat mix to make healthier fish fingers or chicken goujons. Cut the fish or chicken into 2cm wide fingers, coat and cook as above.

Method

  1. Slit the chicken breasts horizontally to make a pocket.
  2. Place the tomatoes, mozzarella and basil in a bowl and drizzle over the olive oil.
  3. Fill the chicken breasts with the tomato mixture and close together. Use cocktail sticks to hold each chicken breast together.
  4. Mix the crushed shredded wheat with the breadcrumbs and black pepper and tip on to a flat tray. Tip the beaten egg into a dish.
  5. Coat the chicken breasts in the egg, making sure you cover both sides. Then lay in the breadcrumb mix, make sure you cover both sides. If you have time, leave in the fridge for at least 5 mins before cooking as this helps the breadcrumbs to stick.
  6. About 15 mins before you are ready to cook the chicken, preheat the oven to 190ºC/374F/gas 5. Place the chicken breasts on to a lightly greased oven tray and bake in the oven for approximately 20 mins, turning over halfway through cooking until golden brown and cooked through.
  7. Serve with the green salad tossed in the dressing
