  • Mix the pesto with the cream cheese.
  • Slice the chicken breasts almost in half.
  • In each chicken breast, place a slice of mature cheese and pesto/cream cheese mixture.
  • Place in a baking dish and cook at 180C/350F for 30-40 minutes until thoroughly cooked and all the juices run clear when you push a knife or a skewer through the thickest part.


Optional - sprinkle a little parmesan or other cheese on top to create a cheesy crust.
