  • Remove top layer of plastic from the breasts and place some filling on each breast.
  • Roll up and secure with toothpicks.
  • Dust lightly with flour, then dip in beaten egg, then roll in the savoury crumbs.
  • Arrange breasts evenly in a circle on a flat dish.
  • Pour over remaining melted butter and 'bake' uncovered on high for approx 8mins.
  • Stand 2-3 minutes before serving.
  • Either leave whole to serve or cut into slices.
