Method

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, ​ fan 180°C. ​ 
  2. Bring a pan of water to the boil, add the carrots and parsnips and cook for 5-6 mins until starting to soften. Drain and leave to steam dry in the colander until no water is visible and the carrots and parsnips have dried.​ 
  3. Blitz the bread in a food blender until it forms fine breadcrumbs. Mix with the tarragon, 1 tsp thyme, lemon zest and garlic. Set aside.​ 
  4. Toss the parsnips, carrot and onion in ​ 1 tbsp oil and remaining 1 tsp thyme on a large baking tray. Season with freshly ground black pepper.​ 
  5. Using a sharp knife, cut a pocket through the centre of each chicken breast, ensuring the hole doesn’t go the whole way through. Divide the Philadelphia Garlic & Herbs between the ​4 pockets, then fold over the chicken to seal. ​ 
  6. Place the chicken on top of the vegetables and top each breast ​ with the breadcrumb mix. Drizzle ​over the remaining 1 tbsp oil and bake on the middle shelf of the oven for ​25-30 mins until the chicken is cooked throughout and the vegetables are tender.
  7. Serve sprinkled with the parsley.​
