  1. Using a small knife, horizontally cut a pocket into each chicken breast.
  2. Mix together the butter, parsley, garlic and plenty of salt and pepper. Spoon the mixture into the pocket of each chicken breast.
  3. Stir together the breadcrumbs and parmesan. Dust the chicken breasts in the seasoned flour then the beaten egg and finally, roll in the breadcrumb mixture.
  4. Heat the vegetable oil in a large frying pan and cook the chicken for 5-6 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through.

  6. Using a hand blender, whiz the mixture until smooth and creamy. Stir in the cilantro, if using, and add salt, pepper and Tabasco to taste.
