  • 1/4 cup soft butter
  • 3 tbsp chopped parsley

  3. Add the soft butter to the harbs and garlic, and mix very well until you get a smooth paste.

  4. Roll it into a sausage shape and cover with cligfilm. Freeze for at least 30 minutes so it can firm up.

  5. Remove the clingfilm and cut the butter into slices. Any unused butter can be stored in  the freezer to be used later on.
  6. Use a sharp knife to cut a deep pocket into the chicken breasts, then place  one or two butter slices inside each pocket and seal the pockets.

  7. Coat the chicken in flour, shaking any excess flour off, then dip them into the egg mixture, and finally coat in breadcrumbs.

  8. Add the vegetable oil to a pan and heat it up on a medium heat.
  9. Place the chicken breasts and fry on both sides for1-2 minutes until golden.

  10. Remove from the pan and place them on a baking tray.
  11. Bake for 15-20 minutes at 180 degrees C (350 F) until cooked through.
