  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.

A very tasty recipe. I stuffed this with boursin garlic cheese too. Glad I did. The family don't like mustard but really flavours the chicken well. I wrap this is parma ham and sprinkle oregano, goes well with baby potatoes and sliced red onion, can put this in the tray at same time - YUM!!!!

Just fantastic! I made this with the mustard-crusted new potatoes recipe, and it was simply divine.

I am a veggie, but I don't mind cooking simple meat dishes for my friends. I made this as a Christmas side dish, and it was dead easy, and I am reliably formed that it was very tasty too!

really easy and really tasty. served with crushed olive new potatos and carrots, made too many chicken breasts so just ate one the next day cold and sliced with salad! yum. i used philadelphia, grated mature cheddar and mustard.

Really yummy! Made it for my dad's birthday meal and he thought it was delicious. He doesn't like garlic so I didn't use Boursin as recommended but stuck with the mozzerella which worked out fine. Served it with some mustard mash and was very yummy :)

so easy to make. i used the herb philadelphia, normal cheddar and normal bacon(not keen on the fatty types) and they turned out perfectly. great twist for a sunday roast.

This was fab! It was really easy and quick to make! I altered it slightly in that I used cheddar cheese and added cherry toms and mushrooms. I served it with steamed root veg and mash - well worthy of a dinner party.
