  • 4 Woolworths Our Butcher butterflied chicken breasts
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and halved
  • 300 g mozzarella, sliced
  • 250 g Woolworths beech-smoked ham, thinly sliced
  • 4 sage sprigs
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 2 T butter

Cooking Instructions

Place the chicken breasts on a baking tray and rub the inside with garlic. Place slices of mozzarella, ham, a sprig of sage and another layer of cheese on one side of each breast, then fold over the other side.

Heat a nonstick pan over a high heat. Add the olive oil and butter and sear the chicken on both sides. Reduce the heat and cook until the cheese has melted.

Finish in the oven at 180°C if necessary. Serve immediately.

Cook's tip: The combo of crisp fried chicken and molten cheese in this retro classic with a twist is positively lethal. It’s so good, who needs breadcrumbs?
