  1. Prep the Chicken:
    • Preheat your oven to 220°C (428°F). Take the butterflied chicken breasts and season them with salt, black pepper, cumin, mint, ground pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil. Add in the chopped onions, parsley, green and red peppers, and minced garlic. Mix well to ensure the chicken is fully coated with the seasonings.

  3. Stuff and Cook:
    • Lay the seasoned chicken breasts flat and spoon a generous amount of the potato filling onto each one. Carefully roll up the chicken breasts to enclose the filling and secure with toothpicks if necessary.
    • Place the stuffed chicken breasts in a baking dish. Mix the tomato paste with water and pour this sauce around the chicken in the dish.
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes.
  4. Add Cheese and Finish Cooking:
    • After 45 minutes, take the chicken out of the oven and sprinkle a generous amount of grated cheddar cheese over the top of each breast.
    • Return to the oven and bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  5. Serve Warm:
    • Let the chicken rest for a few minutes after taking it out of the oven. Serve warm, with the tomato sauce spooned over or alongside for extra flavor.
