Here is a classic 70’s recipe from Terry Woolcock who was the owner & chef of the Sea Cow restaurant in Weymouth (now Vaughan’s). The Sea Cow was the top seafood restaurant in its day and this recipe combining chicken with fresh crab was one of the many gems on his menu.

Recipe for Sea Cow Chicken Supreme

The recipe says to cut into the chicken breast to form a pocket and once stuffed secure with cocktail sticks. I switched this adding the stuffing and then rolling the breasts in clingfilm. I then steamed the breasts for 20 minutes, carefully removed the clingfilm and to get some colour on the breasts, I quickly flash fried in butter. Both methods work well, but the steamed breasts are more succulent and less prone to bursting!!

Give this old recipe a go, you won’t be disappointed, serve with steamed vegetables and mini roasties, with a nice bottle of crisp dry white wine.
