  • 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
  • 4 skinless boneless chicken breast fillets

  1. 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.

This was a tasty meal, I made it for my girlfriend, and she loved it too.

This was delicious and so easy to make, I also used Boursin instead of mozarella and my husband loved it.

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.

This recipe is great...tested it on the boyfriend last night before cooking it on thursday for my Mum and some friends....he loved it!
Tried it with low fat pepper cream cheese, mustard and cheddar, it was great but a little on the salty side, so will be trying it with creme fraiche on thursday instead of the cream cheese!

Made this yesterday for friends....delicious! I read the comments and decided to use strong cheddar, mozzarrella and boursin with wholegrain mustard. I also used parma ham instead of bacon and served with creamy mash, spinach and roasted cherry tomatoes on the vine. I will definately make this again!

This is a wonderfully tasty and quick dish to prepare on a busy work night. Made is just like recipe and everyone loved it. Will definately make again and again. Yummy

Cooked this midweek for family, with boulangere potatoes and brocolli. Everyone loved it. Used dijon mustard instead of wholegrain, to make it more palatable to children. Also adopted the idea of using red pepper. Roasted the peppers first, cooled and then peeled them, and then placed the chicken inside and cooked as per recipe. The peppers produce more of a sauce which makes the dish less dry.
