By bodiddly



  • 4 tsp oil (20ml)

  • 4 chicken breast

  • 4 tbsp mayonnaise

  • 2 cloves garlic (marinated overnight with mayonnaise)

  • 75g gruyère cheese

  • 125g olive oil bread eg ciabatta


  1. Roughly chop bread and process to fine crumbs.
  2. Turn into bowl, stir in grated cheese and season well.
  3. Coat each chicken breast with 1 tbsp garlic mayonnaise. Then dip in crumbs until coated (I just put it on top rather than cover the whole breast).
  4. Place on baking sheet and drizzle with oil.
  5. Cook the chicken under a pre-heated grill until it is cooked through. Slice and serve.
    I cut the chicken breasts down the middle from top to bottom as this lessens the cooking time.

Handy Hint

Yummy served with mixed salad and baked potatoes.

    Easy to prepare in advance and then just bung under the grill at the last minute. The crust keeps the chicken nice and moist!
