Hasselback Chicken Recipe with Tomato, Basil, and Tasty Cheddar Cheese
This Hasselback Chicken is stuffed with tomato, basil and some tasty cheddar cheese. It’s a wonderful dinner idea when you want to have something special!
Serves: 4
  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 150g tasty cheddar cheese, cut into 24 pieces
  • 2 - 3 medium tomatoes, sliced into 24 wedges
  • small bunch of basil
  • 3 - 4 teaspoons of olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons of Italian herbs
  • salt and pepper
  1. Cut deep slits in each chicken breast about half an inch apart and going almost all of the way through (I get about 6 slits per chicken breast).
  2. Place chicken breasts into a greased baking dish.
  3. Stuff each slit with a piece of cheese, wedge of tomato and a basil leaf (If you do have any leftovers I break them up and sprinkle them over the top).
  4. Drizzle the chicken breasts with olive oil.
  5. Season each chicken breast with salt and pepper and sprinkle with Italian herbs.
  6. Bake in oven preheated to 200 °C (400 °F) for 40 – 45 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
  7. When cooked use a large slotted spoon (there will be a bit of juice) to transfer chicken to a plate.
  8. Serve with roasted or steamed vegetable or with a side salad.
