  • For pine nut, herb and lemon stuffing, preheat oven to 160C. Place pine nuts on an oven tray and roast until golden (3-5 minutes). Cool, coarsely chop and place in a bowl. Increase oven to 220C. Add remaining ingredients to bowl, season to taste with sea salt and mix thoroughly.

Cut horizontally, using a sharp knife, from the centre of the breast (at the thickest part) outwards to butterfly the meat on both sides to 1cm thick. Season to taste and place stuffing evenly over centre section of breast. Tightly roll up breast, then tie securely at even intervals with kitchen string. Place in a roasting pan, drizzle with oil and rub butter into skin. Season with sea salt and roast until just cooked through (40-45 minutes). Remove from oven, cover with aluminium foil and rest for 10 minutes. Thickly slice and serve immediately with a quinoa or cracked wheat salad, if desired.
