  • 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
  • 4 skinless boneless chicken breast fillets

  1. 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 dish is absolutely delicious! And it's so easy to make, too! We make it almost every week now.

I've been making this for years and it's always a winner. I use plain cream cheese instead of mozzarella and unsmoked bacon (because I find smoked too salty) and I stretch the bacon out with the blade of a large knife to make it thinner. Any sauce that leaks out is a bonus! I lift the chicken out, pop the tin on the hob and blend in a bit of stock to make a sauce to pour over. Family is always happy when this is on the menu and it has become my older daughter's 'signature dish' at university!

Not great. I have done the normal boursin/soft cheese wrapped in bacon/prosciutto and thought this combination would be interesting but unfortunately most of the filling leaked out (and solidified?!) and everything else got a bit soggy. Disappointed really, as cheese, mustard and chicken sounded amazing! Maybe iI'l give it a go with some ricotta or something.

Goes together well with spinach pasta too:) Also, did a little improvisation by adding pesto and cheddar in place of mozzarella, as I had run out, works great. Mustard and pesto is a great combination for this dish. Overall, great recipe, Cheers!

Excellent recipe and very easy to make. I seasoned with some olive oil and little sea salt and pepper. Total perfection with steamed veggies, potato wedges and peppercorn sauce.

Delicious! I made some amendments like other commenters - used garlic and herb boursin and parma ham. One of the easiest dinners ever - just assemble chicken and leave in oven until it's done. Had it with new potatoes and tenderstem broccolli.

Made this so many times now and always a great favourite. You can't go wrong it's so tasty. Cook for at least 50 mins tho to make sure it's cooked through Serve with new potatoes, carrots and string beans My hubby and grown up daughter love it for evening dinner or for lunch next day. My daughters friends always comment on how good it smells and she tells them how tasty it is too! Have a go ! It's so simple
