Why I Love This Recipe

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.

Ingredients You'll Need

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 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 cover the chicken with it. Shake off the excess flour.

In a skillet, warm 1 tblsp of oil with 20 g butter and cook chicken, at medium-high heat, for 10-15 minutes (depends on how thick your chicken is), until golden, turning only once.
