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 went down a storm the other evening with a group of friends. I substituted plain cream cheese for the mozzarella and added decent amount of ground black pepper. Otherwise followed the recipe as given and it worked brilliantly. Chicken breasts can be a bit bland and dry but this recipe turns them into a succulent treat. Not too pricey either. Served with green beans and a potato gratin. Yum!

Tries this recipe last night and was really impressed. It was very easy to make and tasted great. The mustard wasn't too strong and just used two Easters of normal bacon. Will definitely be making this again.

This is has been a firm family favourite since I found the recipe. I read the comments before I first made it and decided to use Boursin, which works fantastically well. It's really easy to make and seems to be pretty fool-proof!

Very Tasty. A Basic that can be added to/altered. We have tried similar with soft cheese & paxo stuffing- the chicken then wrapped in bacon, then bread crumbs.

This was really lovely, I did add a little bit more mustard to the filling, but it was delicious, and I served it with mashed potatoes and broccoli! Definately one to make again!

I made this exactly as per the recipe. The chicken was beautifully tender and it tasted as good as it looked. I would make again.

Delicious! One of our favourite meals :) this is the first thing I made for my boyfriend when we started dating and I'm making it for our anniversary tonight. I usually serve it with roasted cherry tomatoes, crushed olive oil potatoes and green beans/mange tout. Yum!

@LMP
Now, that's an idea!
I was wondering, has anyone tried a couple of thinly sliced black olives in the stuffing?
Might give it a 'kick', but doesn't really need one...
I'd love to serve the chicken on a grilled Portobello mushroom, but unfortunatetely, Girlie hates mushrooms

Absolutely loved it, really delicious!! So easy to make. I added some chopped courgette and tomatoes to the roasting tin and that worked perfectly!

It's a firm favourite in our place. But, having a mischevious nature, has anyone tried it using Manster, instead of Mozarella?
That'd certainly bring the house down ;-)

I used a combination of ready-grated cheese mixed with fresh mozzarella, and did it on a base of sliced tomatoes, with chunks of leek and shishto (kind of small chilli-shaped green pepper). Ended up swimming in juice, so I served out the veg, and reduced the juice in a small saucepan. Served with a green salad and the juice poured oved garlic rice - delicious! A bit of basil would have given a bit of zing, but I am already thinking of other combinations to try. A little chopped fresh coriander and chilli instead of mustard perhaps, and serve with salsa and tortillas?

No! It does not work.

Bacon does not get cooked property unless you fry the packages beforehands. There is a lot of fat of it as well. I bought expensive free range breasts and was very disappointed.

Wife refused to eat it.
