As promised, here is the full recipe and method that serves 4:

Stuffed Chicken Breasts

– 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
– 1.5 cups crumbled feta cheese
– 1/2 cup chopped sun dried tomatoes
– 3/4 cup chopped kalamata olives
– 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
– 1 tbsp fresh chopped oregano
– 1 tbsp fresh chopped thyme
– salt and pepper

Crumble the feta cheese in a mixing bowl, and add in the olive oil, oregano and thyme. Stir and let this mixture sit for about 30 mins to absorb flavour. Next add in the sun dried tomatoes, olives and salt and pepper and set mixture aside.

Cut a pocket in each of the chicken breasts, careful not to slice all the way through. Spoon the mixture into each chicken breast generously, then using butchers string, skewers or toothpicks, secure the chicken breasts closed to ensure filling does not leak out.

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Using a hot saute pan, sear the chicken breasts for 4-5 minutes on either side, until nicely browned. Transfer the pan (if oven-safe) into the hot oven and continue cooking for approx 10-12 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

Roasted Balsamic Carrots

– 10-15 carrots, peeled
– 3/4 cup good quality balsamic vinegar
– salt and pepper
– few sprigs fresh thyme

Place the peeled carrots in a pot of boiling water for 5-6 minutes. Drain carrots and place in a baking dish or roasting pan. Season them with salt and pepper and then drizle the balsamic vinegar until carrots are completely coated. Top with the fresh springs of thyme and roast carrots in the oven for 2o-25 minutes until tender.

Roasted Garlic and Thyme Mashed Potatoes

– 2-3 lbs boiled potatoes (skins on or off depending on your preference)
– 2 heads roasted garlic (see video for instruction on how to do this)
– 1 tbsp fresh chopped thyme
– salt and pepper to taste
– 2 tbsp of butter (or to taste)
– 1/2 cup of milk (or to taste)

There you have it guys! Nothing to it!
