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.

Absolutely Delicious! Easy to prepare and cook. Chicken is very succulent and oozing with gorgeous flavours. Served with galic and herbed roast potatoes. Shall definately make this dish again

This was SO yummy!! I used stock from my cupboard and didn't use mozzarella but my 3 year old and partner wolfed it down, we ate it with onion risotto. I thought I'd used too much English mustard but it was perfect!!!! Thanks for the great recipe xxxx

I did this tonight but used Cage Aged Cheddar which is very strong so less needed and a bit of french cheese I had left over. It was seriously gorgeous but even better was that it went with the olive crushed potatoes so well - cant wait to try again!

I loved the cheese in this recipe and tried it at a family dinner - they loved it! However, my grandmother does not eat, touch or go anywhere near cheese so I put in her's some butter and mustard - it went down a treat! TRY THIS RECIPE!!!

Nice dish enjoyed by myself and hubby. I don't think it would harm to add a little more mustard to the mix. Very easy to make.

Just made this for my wife and I.. The flavours come oozing out and the smoked bacon really is perfect for this. I poured the juices all over my new potatoes and it was lush mmm

I have made this recipe several times now, always with Boursin instead of mozzarella, it seems to be pretty much fail-safe and is truly delicious

yummy but a bit boring, could do with some more flavour.

Delicious and easy. I made it with Philadelphia light and half fat cheddar and used Parma ham instead of bacon to make it healthier. Will definitely be making this again very soon.

Really easy to make. I did find that I needed 3 rather than 2 rashes of bacon per breast. I too used Boursin instead of Mozzerella but think i'd give the Mozzerella a try or a soft cheese with less herbs in. I found the Boursin was a bit too strong in garlic. Other than that a lovely idea and simple to make.

Made it for tea tonight and it was lovely. Might try soft cheese next time. Served it with green beans and spring onion mash

This is great, i've made it twice once witha ball of mozzerella, and the second with grated mozzerella, not a fan of mustard but it made the flavour and was delious, went well with the family, was gorge
