Chicken Pockets with Garlic and Cheese

Recipe: Chicken Pockets with Garlic and Cheese


  1. 2 Chicken Breasts
  2. 4 tbsps 0% fat Cream Cheese
  3. Garlic Powder to taste
  4. Salt to taste


  1. Pre-heat oven to 180º/350º/Gas Mark 4-moderate Slice the chicken breasts along the middle creating a “pocket”, being careful not to cut all the way through. Sprinkle some salt and garlic powder inside the pockets you just created. Spread some tin foil in a roasting tray – enough to wrap the meat and put the chicken breasts in. Put 1-2 table spoons of cream cheese inside each “pocket” and add some more garlic powder on top. Seal up the meat with your fingers and finally sprinkle some parsley over it. Cover everything with the foil so that it is all closed up. Cook for 30 minutes at 180C. Open the foil, put the oven on grill and cook for a further 10-15 minutes.
