  • 125g ball mozzarella, torn into small pieces
  • 50g strong cheddar, grated



    Once cheddar was 'Cheddar', a large, hard-pressed barrel of cheese made by a particular…

  • 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
  • 4 skinless boneless chicken breast fillets
  • 8 smoked streaky bacon rashers


  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. 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.

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 ;-)

loved this recipe, was really yummy. I used the Boursin instead of mozerella, fantastic combo with baby potatoes crushed with extra virgin olive oil and veg

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!

Loved this. So easy to make and looks like it took a long time. Served with Jersey Royals and green veggies. Will make again.

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.

I thought this was delicious and the hubby loved it too! Will defo do it again. I added a little parmesan to the cheeses and stuck with the mozzarella, wrapped each breast in rindless back bacon instead of streaky.

Extremely good! Although the wholegrain we used was a bit too 'tangy', anyone used an alternate mustard or ingredient?

Not our favourite GF recipe but tasty enough. Wish we had taken previous advice and used Boursin.

Great recipe. Used strong cheddar and boursin. I did it with my Caesar salad of lettuce, croutons, sliced avocado, shavings of parmesan and caesar dressing, plus spicy wedges. Definitely in my favourites folder!
