Make it different
Other cheeses also work well with the chicken, including taleggio, ripe brie, dolcelatte or even le Roulé.


  1. Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Loosen the skin from the chicken breasts and stuff each with a slice of the goat’s cheese and a sprig of thyme. Put in a shallow ovenproof dish.

  2. Halve the cherry tomatoes and scatter around the chicken with a few more sprigs of thyme, a drizzle of olive oil and splash of white wine. Season with pepper, and salt if you wish.

  3. Bake for 25-30 mins until the chicken is tender and golden. Serve with Saffron wild rice (recipe right).
