Chicken breasts 'stuffed' with yeast extract spread, the British classic condiment known as Marmite/Vegemite, then baked. Serve with salad, fries or any potato side dish. My kids love it!

My concern with this recipe is not the taste. Now, I will admit that I am in the "I Hate Marmite" camp. But I thought that it would work here, and it did! But, the 45 minute cooking time dried the chicken out. I tried the same recipe with bone-in chicken breasts and leg quarters, and it was fantastic! But since the star rating is for the original recipe, it has to be low, as the chicken was too dry. Great flavour concept, but cooking times are wrong. Read More

This works well with some vegetarian chicken substitutes at a somewhat shorter cooking time. I find it helps to cover the dish for most of the baking time; things stay more moist that way. Even the pickiest eaters in my family cleaned their plates. Read More
