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.

This was amazing - and got me a foot-massage from my happy husband. Instead of mozzarella and mustard, I used Saint-Agur blue cheese mixed in with some damson fruit chutney from the Fine Cheese Company. It's a good combination - the sharp cheese is excellent with the salty bacon. I'm definitely going to do this one again - it's impressive enough for a dinner party.

Did those who used boursin, also use mustard? or did the just use the boursin? Also, would Pancetta work in lieu of bacon rashers? thanks!

This was lovely. I left out the mozzarella and used a spoon of creme fraiche for the filling, and wrapped the chicken in proshiutto ham. Stunning, and well appreciated in our house!

This was great! I'd like to try it with camembert, blueberries and garlic. I also like to use pancetta instead of bacon in these kinds of recipes.

Unbelievably simply but unusual! Cooked as recipe, but will definitely try some of the variations - I really like Cee's idea of putting inside partly roasted peppers.

This recipe was absolutely delicious! I added a little garlic to the cheese and mustard mix and it really did bring out the flavours. Unfortunately I did something wrong and the filling came out but it was still great! I would definitely make this again :-)

My butcher only had large chicken breasts which made it a bit dry. Nice dish will make again but with smaller chicken breasts this time

Top drawer stuff! Everyone loved it. In the future though, I would probably use Parma ham intead of bacon, only because here in Australia, you can't get decent streaky bacon like the mother land.

Delicious! I used Boursin and instead of the mustard, added my own sweet red jalapenos to the cheese for a bit of a kick. Served with a crunchy green salad, mixed peppers and the recommended crushed potatoes (with a hint of onion and garlic) Yum!

Try putting the chicken stuffed with boursin inside a partially roasted red pepper. Then cook as above. The boursin and red pepper juices are fab together!

A great and very easy recipe to do, i made it packed full of mozzarella, and crushed olive oil new potatoes. i did put them in the oven for 15/20 mins and then under the grill for a couple of mins to crisp up.

This was delicious. Absolutely spot on. I used boursin light and had a side of green beans and crispy new potatoes. Would recommend to anyone.

This was fantastic! It took a little longer than stated to cook but it was worth the wait! A really tasty dish that was quick and easy to prepare. I served the chicken with baby potatoes sauted with red onion, bacon and mushrooms and some winter roasted veg - delicious!
