Cumin Gouda & Apple Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Ready in 35 minutes. Serves 4.


  • 4 skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cooking apple, sliced
  • 100g Food Snob Cumin Gouda Cheese
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper


Preheat oven to 190oC, and line a baking dish with parchment or foil. 

Heat olive oil in a frying pan, and sear both sides of each chicken breast until golden brown. Remove from heat.

Cut a pocket diagonally into the top edge of each chicken breast, and stuff each breast with apple slices, grated Cumin Gouda and a sprinkle of thyme. Place on baking dish, ensuring the chicken breasts are tilted slightly so the cheese doesn’t run out, and season with salt & pepper and a sprinkle of thyme. Bake for 20 mins until chicken is cooked through

Serve with mashed potato and seasonal greens.
