How to Chop Herbs

Method

1. Preheat oven to 180°C.

2. Into a food processor place the bread and blitz until it resembles fine bread crumbs. Add the garlic, onion, cream cheese, herbs, cranberries, pistachios, salt and pepper. Blitz a few times until combined but still a little chunky.

3. Use a rolling pin to flatten the chicken breasts between two pieces of baking paper until they are approx ½ cm thick. Cover the breasts with spinach. Spread the stuffing over the breasts and roll tightly. Place into a baking dish.

4. Sprinkle over a little oil and cover. Bake in the oven for 45 mins until cooked through. Remove and allow to sit for 20 mins before slicing.

5. Serve hot or cold.
