This meal was inspired by the gorgeous Mediterranean flavours I ate in Crete, and in my opinion it is absolutely delicious!

It’s not the cheapest thing on the planet but it’s not too pricey, and for a special treat it’d be perfect. It’s a really quick and easy meal to make and it’s super tasty – just a few minutes preparation, cook, and then eat!

Leftovers should be fine to reheat for a day or two, but keep in the fridge and make sure the chicken is piping hot.

Serves: two people.

Cost per person: £2.17 (price based on Tesco Value ingredients).


  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 75g (approx) feta cheese
  • Small handful of tomatoes
  • 3-4 fresh basil leaves
  • 1 tsp oil
  • Salt and pepper, to season


1) Preheat the oven to 180C.

2) Cut a slit into the centre of the chicken breast, cutting almost to the end and close to both sides so that you have lots of room for the filling.


3) Stuff the chicken breast with chopped tomatoes, crumbled feta and torn up basil leaves. Season with salt and pepper and drizzle with oil. Sprinkle a little more basil on the outside of the chicken.

4) Cover with foil and cook in the oven for 25-30 minutes, until the juices run clear. Serve with a salad for a light, summery meal.
