I had the most wonderful Easter Weekend. We spent the weekend at home and because it was raining, the most part of the weekend was spent indoors. We cooked, baked and had fun together as a family.
We went to the movies and saw the movie Titanic. It was the first time that my children saw this in a cinema because they were too young when it was first released. Although we enjoyed it a lot, we all cried a lot. Titanic is really an epic film which I can watch over and over again.
Unfortunately the girls went back to Stellenbosch this morning and for the first time in years; I had the Sunday blues (on a Monday)! The schools are also opening again tomorrow for the second term so Boykie will be back at school. I just cannot believe that it is April already!!
I use to make a meal in minutes on Wednesday nights, but since Masterchef SA is now showing on the television on a Tuesday night I make my quick and easy meals now on a Tuesday night. This dish is very quick to prepare and also economical because boned-in chicken breasts are very affordable.
6 Chicken breasts (with or without skin and bone)
3 disks feta cheese with black pepper
a handful of fresh basil leaves, torned
250g streaky bacon
salt and black pepper
Pre-heat the oven to 180ºC.
Break up the feta cheese and mix with the basil leaves.
Make a small slit into each chicken breast and stuff with the feta and basil mixture.
Season with salt and pepper and wrap two to three pieces of bacon around each chicken piece.
Place onto a roasting pan and roast in the pre-heated oven for 50 minutes.
Serve with a salad on the side.
