Ricotta and Mint Stuffed Chicken Breast

K, D and I had the busiest but yet fulfilling weekend ever. We were involved in a fair and lots of prep went into this day, but the result was outstanding. At least 4000 or even more would have come on Sunday. The street was buzzing! Today, monday has been a chill day for me, dropped K at work and D at childcare, and I was home relaxing and having some alone time. But then of course dinner time came (I grabbed lunch outside with K) and I had to make some food for us. I had bought some chicken breasts that needed to be used, and vine tomatoes that I bought on Saturday, and then I saw a tub of ricotta in the fridge, so I put it all together and ba’am dinner was ready
