Method

1. Preheat oven to 200°C.

2. Make a deep cut in each chicken breast to form a pocket and fill these pockets with sundried tomatoes, basil and mozzarella. Place each chicken breast on a square of lightly greased foil.

3. Add 2 squashed but unpeeled garlic cloves, a dash of white wine and a pinch of freshly ground black pepper to each square of foil.

4. Draw in the foil from the corners and fold over to seal. Bake for 25-30 mins until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink.

5. De-seed the peppers and cut these, and the rest of the vegetables into evenly-sized pieces. Toss with olive oil and place on a non-stick baking tray. Cook in the oven along with the chicken.
