Serves 4 | Prep Time 15 mins | Cook Time 10-15 mins


4 chicken breasts (four halves)
1 zucchini
3.5 oz mozzarella
2 tbls fresh chives (chopped)
oil + butter
half a glass of white wine or Dry Marsala

Wash, dry, and then shred zucchini. After 5 minutes, drain the water zucchini will release.

Mix zucchini with finely chopped or shredded mozzarella and chives.

With a knife create "a pocket" on one side of chicken brest. Salt the meat inside, or use your favourite chicken seasoning.

Fill the "pocket" with zucchini/mozzarella filling and close with several toothpicks.

Mix flour with salt and pepper and dredge the chicken in it. Shake off the excess flour.

In a skillet, warm 1 tblsp of oil with 1 tblspoon butter and cook on both sides until the chicken is nice golden brown, turning only once.

Add Marsala and let it evaporate a little bit, then cover, reduce the heat to minimum and cook for about 5-10 minutes, (depends how thick your chicken is), until the meat is done.

The recipe comes from a cookbook called Quick everyday recipes, by Anne Wilson. Since we eat chicken a lot, I like to try new ways of preparing it. This was quite a success.

Thank you SO much for this recipe. It was FANTASTIC! I love new ways to cook chicken AND get some veggies in. My husband ate two pieces of chicken. Thank you!
