Method

Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Mix the cheeses and mustard together. Cut a slit into the side of each chicken breast, then stuff with the mustard mixture. Wrap each stuffed chicken breast with 2 bacon rashers – not too tightly, but enough to hold the chicken together. Season, place on a baking sheet and roast for 20-25 mins.

I made this with Boursin with Garlic and Herb which my other half said was lovely with the Chicken but I had it with the mushrooms and it was slightly overpowering, I think the mozarella would be better with the mushrooms. I also served crushed potatoes but think it may be better with pasta and will be trying that next time. Was easy to make after work, although took slightly longer than it was supposed to.

My New Years resolution was to tech myself to cook and this was the first recipe I tried. Scrum-diddly-umptious!! Mega easy and absolutely gorgeous. It has really boosted my kitchen confidence.

I can't say enough about this lovely, simple little recipe. It is a wonderful "base" recipe to try then change it up however you choose. Just make sure you have a good grainy mustard and plenty of it smeared inside. I have never had such a positive response from friends I have shared this with. A definate "must try" to dazzle your guests without any effort. Have never roasted cherry tomatoes in the pan but will be next time.

Made a nice change from plain chicken breast, I didnt have any cheddar so used gouda.
To be honest I thought it would be tastier than what it was but it was an interesting recipe and the bacon gave it a nice flavour.
If I try this again I would have to jaz it up a bit.

I found this recipe yesterday, and couldnt wait to try it today,, wow..it was so nice, i did change mozzarella to Boursin with garlic which i bought from sainsbury, i didnt put cheddar either, i put sundried tomato instead, then mixed with wholegrain mustard. so nice, and simple to make, also it is fun to work with my husband, as he is holding the chicken and i wrapped it with bacon..we both loved it. i also made roasted potatoes which i found from bbc good food as well, made it with goose fat, lovely..will definetely make it again, again, again..

I tried this last night for my boyfriend. We both really really loved this one and said it was so good I would even cook it when friends came over. I put some winter vegetables in with the chicken and put a little oil over them with rosemary sprigs and roasted the lots.
Delicious! Also very very easy!

This was absolutely scrummy! I didn't have any stron cheddar so I used Red Leicester, which seemed to go down very well!

Really delicious - my daughter's new boyfriend is a chef! I cooked this for him (you can imagine how anxious I was). But it went down a treat. We had it with baked potatoes, green beans and carrots. I snuck some Gorgonzolla cheese (just little) in. Good idea to use Boursin instead of mozarella - Ill try that next time.

Excellent, like others I made with only Boursin, and finished off under the grill to crisp up the bacon,my husband loved it,I will definately make it again, so quick and easy.

Had a load of creme fraiche left after making the chicken dish so
used the cheese mix (Creme fraiche, cheddar, mustard) on top of salmon fillets, wrapped them individually in foil to cook and then poured the whole lot onto cooked pasta.....delicious!
made cheese mix for 4 but only 2 salmon fillets...serves 2.

This recipe is a lifesaver! So quick, simple and tasty. As others have suggested, I changed the recipe slightly, mixing Boursin with a little pesto, and smearing a generous blob of the mix into the folded-put chicken fillet, along with some baby spinach leaves. Wrapped the whole lot in steaky bacon, although I needed more bacon than expected (approx 3 rashers per fillet). I served it with new potatoes, ratatouille and a green salad. As I'm a veggie, I used the same boursin/pesto mix to stuff a large field mushroom, and that too was delicious. Best of all, the chicken seemed to benefit from being prepared in advance and kept in the fridge to firm up before cooking. Apparently, the chicken was also good cold, sliced up and served in a baguette with the goo left from the cooking. Highly recommended.

I found this delightful. I followed the recipe apart from I used Prosciutto instead of the bacon. As i was cooking for a crowd I didnt want the Chicken drying out, so I wrapped in foil to keep moist, then opened the parcels about 10mins into cooking to crisp up the Prosciutto it worked really well. Served with Potato Dauphinois, Balsamic Roasted Cherry Tomatoes and green salad. it tasted amazing, its on my favorites list. Will try with Boursin next time.
