  1. Grill the chicken breasts until they are almost cooked (about 10 to 15 minutes turning once). Remove from the grill.

  3. Place the cheese slice on top of the tomatoes and bake in the oven for 5 minutes.

Serving suggestions

On its own or with rösti and salad.


You could try this with other fowl or game birds, but you will need to adjust the cooking times accordingly.

Try 'grilling' the chicken with a Breville Stainless Steel Panini Press or equivalent. Preheat the panini press, add a teaspoon of olive oil to the palm of your hands and rub both chicken breasts to lightly coat in oil. Place in the press, close and leave for 11 minutes.
