    Heat the Oven
    Pre-Heat Oven to 350°F /175°C/Gas Mark 5.
    Stuff the Chicken
    Leave the chicken out of the fridge for at least 15 minutes prior to cooking, so that it comes to room temperature. Season the chicken with salt, pepper and dried thyme. Split it in the middle to form a pocket, be careful not to split it completely. Spread mustard on the inside of the chicken. Divide the spinach and cheese evenly between each breast and stuff them into the chicken breasts. Use toothpicks to hold the breasts together as they bake in the oven.
    Mise en Place

    Prepare the vegetables as follows:
    Zucchini; wash, dry and cut into medium dices
    Carrots; wash, dry and cut into medium dices.

    Prepare the Pan:

    Finally, lightly grease a roasting pan or baking tray. Place carrots, zucchini at the bottom.
    Get Cooking
    Heat some oil in a pan. Once the pan is hot enough, place the chicken breasts in the pan and lightly colour both sides. Then transfer to the roasting pan / baking tray, along with any of the pan juices.

    Bake for about 20 minutes.

    Once the chicken and vegetables are out, keep the chicken aside to rest for 5 minutes. Toss the vegetables, along with the butter while they’re still warm, check for seasoning and you’re good to go.
