  1. Preheat your oven to 200C. Slice the chicken through the side creating a pocket in the middle. Put it in a bowl and add a tablespoon of salt and pepper. Rub it on, until it is well coated.
  2. Spread a tablespoon of pesto inside the breast pocket. Stuff the pocket with a tablespoon of shredded mozzarella and one sundried tomato. Repeat this process with the rest of the breast. If you can close the chicken, secure it with a toothpick.
  3. Heat an oil-coated cast-iron or frying pan to high. Sear the chicken breast fillets for 3-5 minutes or until golden brown and repeat on the other side.
  4. If not cooking on a cast-iron skillet, transfer your chicken to a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 8 minutes. Don’t clean the pan unless burnt.
  5. Add some noodles to boiling water and cook as per box instructions. While the pasta is cooking, chop the remaining sundried tomatoes. Rinse the pasta and add them to the pan. Add the tomatoes and an appropriate amount of pesto to coat the pasta.
  6. Once the chicken is done, let it rest for 5 minutes. Serve the chicken with a side of pasta and enjoy.
