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.

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

It was delicious! Since I couldn't find any Cheddar - I live in France - I replaced it with Mimolette cheese, and everyone loved it.

Followed the recipe exactly and it was really yummy, can be made to look quite impressive too! We ate ours with garlic mash, leeks and green beans.

Absolutely delicious, made it several times midweek as so quick! Added my own changes...like half teaspoon of garlic granules, and sliced spring onions to the stuffing. brushed the bacon with honey for the last 10 minutes.

I made this using Borsin instead of mozzarella, but would recommend mozzarella, as the taste of the borsin was overpowering.

Also, slit the chicken from the top, not the side, or the filling will fall out.

Gorgeous, and I don't usually like smoked bacon. Made it exactly to the recipe and I'm glad I did. My husband also loved it.

This was a delicious recipe!.. just tried it yesterday for my family and they all loved it!..
the only problem i faced was that the chicken was a bit dry.. how do you tackle that?

Great recipe - I use Philadelphia Light instead of the Mozzarella to give a more diet friendly version. Works brilliantly!
