Chicken with Gruyere and smoked garlic

Serves 4


4 Chicken Breasts
8oz grated Gruyere
3-4 cloves of smoked garlic (or ordinary if no smoked)
Pinch of cayenne pepper
1oz butter
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt pepper
½ pt double cream
2 tbsp brandy


Butterfly the chicken (or cut a pouch), season with pepper and a little salt and fill with a few slices of garlic and some of the grated cheese and re-fold.

Heat the butter and oil in a frying pan and add the chicken. Cook chicken until done, turning once (10-12 minutes). Remove chicken onto warm plate and keep warm while making sauce.

Deglaze the pan with the brandy; add the cream and the rest of the grated cheese. Add cayenne pepper and season. Bring sauce to the boil and simmer for a few minutes, stirring regularly and serve over chicken.

My cousin, his wife and three kids came at the weekend and DH cooked this. His wife was absolutely astounded that her two fussy 9 year old DT's came back for more sauce to eat with their vegtables .
