Method

  1. Heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Mix together the cream cheese, garlic and herbs with some seasoning. Cut a slit in the side of each chicken breast, ensuring you don’t pierce through the other side. Using your fingers, make a bigger pocket and stuff the creamy mix inside. Season the chicken breasts, then wrap 3 slices of pancetta around each, covering the pocket tightly.
  2. Put on a baking tray, brush with a little oil and bake for 18-20 mins until cooked through.

Very good and really easy. Next time I would chop the garlic to avoid getting huge lumps in the filling! I also found it took longer than 20 minutes to cook - guess this was because I had thick breast joints.

Really yummy :P Crispy outside, creamy inside, and easy to make. Needed more than 20 mins to bake though, maybe b/c my chicken was rather plump one, must've been on steroids ;)

These were lovely got a big thumbs up, I used La Roule - Chilli, next time will try Boursin, makes it easier still with garlic cheese!
