Stuffed Chicken Breast

This is the Chicken from my dinner part of #WIAW this week. The chicken is so succulent, the veg crunchy and sauce chunky! It all goes so well together you are going to HAVE to make it again and again ūüôā This makes a perfect dinner party dish. If you are not too keen on brie you can use mozzarella or feta instead. I use my julienne peeler to get the julienne slices from the carrot and butternut squash. If you don’t have one slice as thinly as you can.

This recipe serves 2

Seal the chicken in a hot pan for a couple of minutes on each side
