Method

  1. Skin 2 chicken breasts, then cut a pocket in each side and stuff each with 25g/1oz soft goat’s cheese.
  2. Wrap each breast in 2 rashers rindless streaky bacon, tucking in a few fresh sage leaves, then put the breasts in a baking dish and season. Spoon over 1 tbsp olive oil.
  3. Roast the chicken breasts in a baking dish, uncovered, for 30-35 minutes in a preheated oven (190C/gas 5/fan oven 170C). To check if they are done, prod the chicken with your finger - if it's still a bit soft, give it a bit longer.
  4. Serve with a gratin of potatoes and leeks.

This was okay, but the mustard stuffed chicken on this site is so much better - I will stick to that one from now on (and for those who don't like mustard - neither do I, but you can't taste it as mustard, it just adds a piquancy). The other thing is that I always think that pancetta is better than bacon wrapped around anything - it's thinner and goes lovely and crispy

This was a fantistic! I used thyme leaves as I couldnt get hold of sage. I also made a sauce by adding a little more goats cheese and a half a glass of wine to the yummy bits left in the dish after cooking, I just reduced this by half whilst keeping the chicken warm.

You simply must try this dish!
