2 tbsp (30 mL/2 oz) kosher salt

1 tbsp (15 mL/0.6 oz) pepper

1/2 cup (125 mL/4 oz) vegetable oil, divided



3/4 cup (175 mL/6 oz) vegetable oil

1/4 cup (60 mL/0.4 oz) dried oregano

3 tbsp (45 mL/3 oz) kosher salt

1 tbsp (15 mL/0.6 oz) pepper

1 tbsp (15 mL/0.1 oz) garlic powder

8 lb (4 kg) yellow potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks

1 cup (250 mL/3.2 oz) grated Parmesan cheese





1. Chicken: Toss together fontina, artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes, basil and garlic. Make 2-inch (5 cm) slit into side of each chicken breast, moving knife back and forth to make pocket. Fill each chicken breast with 1/2 cup (125 mL) filling; pull and pinch chicken to seal in filling. Chicken can be prepared up to 1 day in advance.


2. Season chicken all over with salt and pepper. Heat some of the oil in large skillet set over medium-high heat; sear chicken (two at a time), skin side down, for 3 to 5 minutes or until crisp with golden brown crust, adding vegetable oil as needed. Flip and sear for 3 to 5 minutes; transfer to wire rack on tray. Chicken can be seared up to 1 hour in advance.


3. Potatoes: Whisk together oil, melted butter, lemon juice, oregano, salt, pepper and garlic powder; toss with potatoes until well coated. Sprinkle with Parmesan; toss to coat. Place two large roasting pans in 425°F (220°C) oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until smoking hot.


4. Carefully divide potatoes between pans and arrange in even layer; immediately return to oven. Roast, tossing occasionally and rotating pans once, for about 1 hour or until tender and golden brown. Potatoes can be roasted up to 2 hours in advance. Hold, covered, in a warm oven until ready to serve.  


5. Assembly (1 portion): Bake chicken breast in 425°F (220°C) oven, for 12 to 15 minutes or until instant-read thermometer reads 165°F (73°C) when inserted into center of chicken. Serve with 1 cup (5.5 oz) roasted potatoes.



  • Potatoes can also be cut into wedges.
  • Fontina can be replaced with mozzarella, provolone or Friulano cheese.
  • Chicken can be finished with a simple white wine and cream sauce.
  • Serve with garlicky sautéed rapini, grilled tomato halves, steamed green beans or roasted beets.
