Have you ever heard of Black Garlic? Neither had I! If you love garlic then you will love it. It's molasses like flavour gives any dish a new depth that fresh garlic just can't. Best of all garlic breath is a thing of the past.
This is a Mediterranean style dish. I love them as they are always so delicious but have an element of freshness and healthiness to them. I can see this being a firm favourite throughout the warmer months in our house!
Bake for 40 minutes or until the chicken breasts are cooked thoroughly. Serve with your choice of greens and new potatoes.
To feed 4 people you will need:
4 x Chicken breasts (1 per person)
1 ball of Buffalo Mozzarella (Sliced)
1 jar of Sun dried Tomatoes
3 cloves of Black Garlic (Chopped)
A bunch of fresh Basil leaves (Washed)
Mixed dried Italian herbs
Salt & Pepper
Pre-heat your oven to 200c/Gas mark 6/400F. Carefully butterfly (slice open) your chicken breasts in half and lay them open on a baking dish. Season with salt, pepper and a generous sprinkling of dried Italian herbs. Lay some Mozzarella, Tomatoes, Black Garlic and Basil on each chicken breast and fold over. Lightly season the breasts with some more Italian herbs and add any remaining ingredients on top.
N:B - Sainsbury's kind sent me the Black Garlic to review. As always all opinions are my own and are honest.
