  • ¼

Method

  • Brush the chicken breast liberally with buttery spread. Season lightly with salt and pepper and char grill on a hot griddle or in a frying pan for 3-4 mins on each side until cooked.

  • Meanwhile, place the tomato halves, cut side up on an oiled and seasoned baking tray. Season each with a sprinkling of salt flakes and twist of black pepper. Brush with a little buttery spread and place under a pre-heated grill. Cook for 5-6 mins until beginning to soften.

  • Sprinkle the crumbled Gorgonzola over the tomatoes and return beneath the grill. As the cheese warms it will begin to melt and bubble over the tomatoes.

  • Place the grilled chicken breasts in the centre of the plate and carefully arrange the grilled, softened gorgonzola tomato halves either on the plate or onto the chicken.

  • Scatter the picked watercress salad across the top and drizzle with olive oil.

Top tip for making Chicken with cheesy tomatoes

If you're not a blue cheese fan, then Brie, Parmesan, Gruyere, Gouda and many more cheeses will melt just as well and taste equally good.
