Olive oil

8 Chicken breasts with the skin still on

2 eggs

Handfull of fresh basil

2 cups ricotta cheese

1 teaspoon Ground Black pepper

The process

Beat the eggs and mix together with the ricotta cheese, pepper and chopped basil.

Take each chicken breast and slide your thumb between the skin and the meat creating a pocket, then  fill the pockets with the ricotta mixture.
