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.

As recommended I swapped the mozzarella for Boursin! This recipes is so easy and tastes amazingly good. Never fails to impress

yes its true, this is a great recipe, I served it with brocolli and the suggested potato dish and it was wonderful. This is the 1st time I've stuffed a chicken breast and I think my stuffing could have been better because it didn't stay together but it was still a wonderful recipe. quick and effortless.

This is so yummy! Have made it a few times for the family, and am having a dinner party tonight and am considering using half mozarella and half boursin with a little cheddar. used cheddar and boursin before and it was lovely, thinking mozarella may give itt a little more texture? will see!

Going to serve with roasted new potatoes, green beans and courgettes.

Delicious and easy!

My 11 year old daughter made this for a food technology project and it has now become a regular favourite in our house. Absolutely yummy!

I tend to add 1 tea spoon of wholegrain mustard and 1 English mustard which gives a nice bit of warmth to the dish.

Easy, tasty, great dish for entertaining! Served it with baby carrots and asparagus on a bed of (own recipe for) Mediterranean couscous. Yum!! Had lots of compliments for it, and it was a doddle to make!!

Very nice. Filling makes for a very moist tasty chicken dish. Used juices to make a chicken/mustard flavour gravy.

I also swapped the mozarella for Boursin (with extra crushed garlic - we love our garlic!) and left out the mustard as I thought it would clash with the garlic. It was delicious!!

Tried this last night but found it very dry! The use of mozzarella didn't really work but maybe trying another soft cheese would be better?

We've just eaten this, with good old mash and green beans. It's delicious! I made it as in the recipe and also made the veggie alternative, and both options proved to be a hit!!! Really quick, easy and tasty - gonna serve this at my next dinner party...

So easy and quick. I used plain soft cheese and added fresh chives and garlic. Really yummy. Left-overs ate well cold with salad the next day.
