  • 2 medium chicken breasts (marinated – see recipe below)
  • 1/2 cup tomatoes, chopped
  • ½ red capsicum, seeded and diced
  • 1/2 cup silverbeet, chopped
  • 1/4 cup goat’s cheese, crumbled


  • 2 tbsp tamari sauce
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tsp thyme
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Mix together and cover chicken breasts in the marinade for a few hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 170◦C and line a baking tray. With a large sharp knife, carefully cut the chicken breasts part way through – don’t cut all the way through.
  3. Open the chicken breasts up and layer the tomato, cheese and silverbeet. Stick a couple of toothpicks in near the opening to keep it all together.
  4. Put loaded chicken breasts into the oven. Cook for 30 minutes or until cooked through.
  5. Serve with a side of steamed vegetables.
