1. Preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Make a slit along one side of each of the chicken breasts to form a pocket, making sure you dont cut all the way through.

2. Mix together the cheese and garlic and divide between the chicken pockets. Close the pockets and secure with a cocktail stick.

3. Dip each chicken piece in flour, then egg, then breadcrumbs and place on a non-stick baking sheet. Drizzle over the oil then bake for 20-25 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the filling is beginning to ooze out.

4. Serve with potatoes and vegetables or salad.
