Stuffed Chicken Breast with Roast Vegetables

A simple, yet special, dish: Spinach and Cottage Cheese stuffed Chicken Breast with garlic and rosemary celeriac and roasted asparagus tips.

NOTE: If making this according to allowances on the Cambridge Weight Plan steps, the size of the chicken breast will determine the amount of cottage cheese to be used. In this particular meal, my chicken breast weighed 178g so I used 87g of cottage cheese. I also used cubed celeriac that I had previously par boiled for 3 minutes and then frozen. It will weigh out the same as fresh.

  1. Place cottage cheese in a bowl with 10g baby spinach leaf, garlic granules, Italian herbs and dill. Mix thoroughly.
  2. Create a pocket by slicing into the side of the chicken breast.
  3. Stuff the spinach and cheese mixture into the breast and use cocktail sticks to close the side of the breast if you need to.
  4. Place in a roasting dish, season the breast with black pepper and cover with foil and bake at 200c for 25-30 minutes.
  5. Put 50g of prepared celeriac on a tray lined with greaseproof, spray once with frylight and season with garlic granules and rosemary. Bake alongside the chicken.
  6. When 8 minutes cooking time remain, uncover the chicken and also add 20g of asparagus tips (one spray frylight and black pepper).
  7. When cooked, allow the chicken 5 minutes to rest. Slice and serve alongside the roasted vegetables.

  1. Hi I made the Stuffed Chicken Breast today it was amazing.
    I just wanted to know how you worked the measurements out for how much cottage cheese to use against the weight of my piece of chicken.
    Thank you

    1. Hi thanks for your message! It’s just a percentages game.
      So 178g of chicken breast is 73% of your chicken allowance. So then you just need 27% of the cottage cheese allowance (which is 87g) to make up a whole portion of protein.
      To work out the percentage you divide the weight by the allowance and multiply by 100.
      So- 178/245 then X 100= 73%
      To get 27% of the cheese:
      325 X 0.27 = 87g

      Hope this helped!
