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.

Delicious! All of my family thoroughly enjoyed this.

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!

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.

I made this with just mozarella, no cheddar or mustard, and added a sprig of rosemary when wrapping the chicken in the bacon. Gorgeous, will definitely be making this one again, and might try roasting some tomatoes in the same tray.

This is a fantastic recipe. As a twist on this idea I used garlic and herb Philadelphia, mustard and then added the same quanity as the mustard of honey. This added a slight sweetness that goes really well with the smoked bacon. If you have any of the cheesy mixture left i spooned it over the top of the cicken before putting it in the oven.
It was so nice i made it twice a week for the first two weeks!

I have also made the vegetarian version of this delicious recipe and it's just as good.I did use boursin again instead of the mozzarella.

I tweeked this recipe a bit and used parma ham instead of slices of bacon, soft herby cream cheese instead of mozarella and left out the mustard. It was still delicious.

Added half fat creme fraiche and extra 2 tsp of mustard to the final 15 minutes to make a sauce. My friend couldn't believe I made it myself.

I couldn't resist buyin my favourite cheese - goats cheese instead of mozzarella! It worked ok, but the flavour of mustard was too subtle and i wouldve liked that stronger, so will try it again with mozzarella!! but it was sooooo yummy! boyfriend was very impressed ;-)

lovely ! i did it with chicken breasts instead of fillets but it still worked well next time i would use fillets as it was not easy wrapping the bacon around. I also used a whiskey wholegrain mustard which was yummy. would be nice for dinner party.

A great hit with company, so easy still managed to cook it with several glasses of wine on board!!!!. Used Boursin and served with roasted new potatoes, mange tout and sweet corn.

This was really tasty and so easy to do. Served with the crushed olive oil potatoes (as suggested) and mushrooms sauteed in garlic and butter - yum!

Made this last night, used boursin mixed with the mustard, fresh basil and garlic, wrapped in pancetta and added some cherry tomatoes to the oven dish. Served the chicken with hassleback potatoes and runner beans and it went down very well! Really easy and delicious and the boursin makes a lovely sauce. Will definitely make this again.
