  • 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.

mmmmmmmm........delicious! Certainly needs some gravy or sauce though as could potentially be a bit dry if overcooked

Really good and worked perfectly, but a little heavy for me. I roasted some tomatoes and courgettes with it in the same baking tray, and served it with green beans and charlotte potatoes, which went really well

I was really disappointed with this recipe. Normally, I love all the highly rated recipes on this site but this one just didn't work for us. Had to bake it for 30 mins, bacon still wasn't crisp but soggy and most of the cheese had run out and left chicken breasts swimming in mustard coloured water - not appetising at all.. WOn't make it again.

Made this last night with the Boursin & grated cheese stuffing, as many suggested. Very moist and delicious, but the bacon rashers made it very heavy, did not crisp up as expected. A whole breast of chicken sufficed for 2 people. Will make it again, but I will replace the bacon with very thinly sliced prosciutto. Hopefully the breasts will keep their moisture, and the prosciutto will add a salty, suttle flavor, and crisp up. Will let you know!

Cooked this tonight with Boursin. Also threw some mushrooms in the roasting tin. Very simple to prepare/cook. Was nice and moist (we added quarter of 150g pack per serving). Served with crushed, buttered, new potatoes. Über lush!!!!
