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.

Only cooking for two, so I halved this recipe. I found the quantities of the cheese stuffing mixture were a bit generous, but then we also used quite small chicken breasts - a bit of prior judgment perhaps would have helped. I managed to get it all in, but I've about 20 minutes to wait until I see the state of my baking tray...!

A number of other comments are pretty obvious, in that you could easily substitute the type of cheese for something more flavoured etc. It's a great basic recipe that I'm sure I'll make minor edits with the filling and enjoy time and again. Perhaps the most useful comment I noted above (and hence will repeat) is that a little crème fraiche helped to loosen up the stuffing mixture and make it easier to form a paste in which to insert into the chicken.

Now I just have to sit back and wait... smells amazing already!

Made this for the second time - stuck to the recipe apart from wrapping in pancetta. Really tasty and chicken stays really moist but most of the filling had dripped out into the bottom of the tray. Was wrapped really well so might try using cocktail sticks next time aswell to hold it together.

As a lot of reviewers have done I replaced the Mozzarella with cream cheese, added some crushed garlic & replaced chicken breast fillet with Chicken thighs. Turned out really well despite a power cut half way through the cooking. Although tasty thought it the cheesy taste a little overpowering so may try leaving out the cheddar cheese next time.

I made this recipe for my boyfriend and he loved it (me too!)!! Had to shop about a bit to get the ingredients as not all readily available in my small Portuguese town! I served it with mini garlic baked potatoes!!

I made for two peiople so I halved the ingredients. It was ok but too dry. I will try again using Boursin instead of mozzarella as suggested by Amir.

I followed the Boursin suggestion because I imagine it melts to more of a sauce compared to mozzarella. I kept all other ingredients the same and it was a huuuuge success. As a vegetarian i'm always unsure about what meat recipes will work but this one had my boyfriend literally licking his plate clean and he's the type that needs a knife and fork to eat a pizza (ridiculous french 'table manners')

Loved it! So filling. The recipe is easy to change aswell. My partner doesnt like cheese so I added breadcrumbs with chorizo and lime instead of the cheese and he loved it!

I have made this a few times now - always turns out to be extremely tasty. I usually add extra bacon to make sure each chicken breast is fully wrapped in bacon, and i add more filling too. Definitely a firm favourite in our house!

This recipe was really easy to make. I love cheese and mustard so it was perfect for me. I used Boursin instead of the recommended Mozzarella as so many reviews had suggested it. My boyfriend was extremely impressed with the dish. I served with green beans and mashed potato. The chicken was very moist as well.

Made this tonight for my family and it was perfect. I used dijon mustard as didn't have any wholegrain and still tasted fab. I used half the quantities of cheese as family don't like cheese but I would increase this to the full amount next time as like others have said it doesn't taste cheesy at all.

Cooked this for my family tonight and we all really enjoyed it, even my fussy 4 year old. Would highly recommend.

This is a great recipe. I used chicken thighs because I prefer dark meat, and added some cream cheese to the mozzarella stuffing. I roasted some mushrooms with it, then used the roasting juices to make a white wine, cream and mushroom sauce. Served with new potatoes, green beans and sprouts. Absolutely delicious.
