Step-by-step cooking method:

  3. Remove the fat from the chicken fillet (250 grams) and cut into thin strips. I recommend taking fillets from the thighs. If you can't find one in the supermarket, buy the thighs and cut the fillets yourself, removing the skin first.
  4. Heat a pan with a mixture of butter (20 grams) and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. I recommend doing it this way, believe me, it will be tastier.
  5. Put the chopped garlic and onion in the pan and fry for 2-3 minutes until transparent.

  10. Transfer the mixture to a baking dish of the required size. I prepared the julienne in one 18×13-centimeter form, but if you wish, you can bake it in small portions.
  11. Pepper to taste and sprinkle the julienne with coarsely grated cheese (100 grams), put in oven for 15-20 minutes, until the cheese melts and takes on a golden crust.
