Avocado Sun-Dried Tomato and Mozzarella Suffed Chicken on Tagliatelle
This is quite a simple stuffed chicken recipe to put together and tastes good too. I served ours over tagliatelle and asparagus with a sauce and I have listed ingredients for this below, but feel free to serve it however or with whatever you would like. I mainly made the sauce to toss through the pasta although I did serve the remainder in a gravy boat to drizzle over the chicken.


2 Chicken breasts
1/2 Avocado, sliced thinly
4 Sun-Dried tomatoes, sliced
2 Tablespoons sun-dried tomato pesto
100g Basil mozzarella, sliced
200g Fresh tagliatelle
200g Asparagus spears, chopped
4-6 Prosciutto slices (2 per breast if the slices are wide and 3 per breasts if they are thinner, enough to secure around breast.)


50ml Dry white wine
3 Tablespoons sun-dried tomato pesto
1 Cup cream
2 Teaspoons seeded mustard
1/2 Teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning
3/4 Cup Parmesan cheese
1-2 Teaspoons cornflour


1. Pre-Heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

2. Slice breast down the center length ways, careful not to cut all the way through, open breast out, pound with a meat mallet until of equal thickness.

3. Spread 1 tablespoon of sun-dried tomato pesto over one side of the chicken, lay avocado, tomatoes and mozzarella on top of pesto, fold breast over to cover filling, wrap the prosciutto slices around the breast to secure. Repeat with remaining breast.

4. Place breasts in an oven proof dish, drizzle a little oil over, bake for about 30 Min’s or until chicken is cooked through.

5. While chicken is cooking, cook tagliatelle and asparagus, drain and set to one side.


1. In a saucepan add wine, pesto, cream, mustard and lemon pepper seasoning, stir well, add cheese and stir until melted, mix a little water with the cornflour, add to sauce and stir until sauce thickens.

2. Pour enough sauce over pasta and asparagus to just coat, toss through. Serve remaining sauce in a jug on the side to drizzle over chicken.

To Serve: Place pasta on a plate top with chicken either whole or cut in half, Drizzle extra sauce over and garnish with fresh basil if desired.
