  • 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
  • 4 skinless boneless chicken breast fillets
  • 8 smoked streaky bacon rashers


  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.

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.

Serves 4??? You're 'avin a giraffe! Serves ONE unless my girl's not working late evenings, and I'm feeling uncharacteristically generous. ;-) Making it again tonight (for me and the girlfriend) - 4th time. Last time, we almost fought over the last piece! Me being the gentleman..I wolfed it before you could say "Jack Robinson". Making it again tonight accompanied with roasted red pepper and either couscous or egg noodles*. Haven't decided yet. Will report back, but this dish can't fail to please. Seriously, simple, quick and delicious. *(Too late for the suggested new potatoes, but that worked beautifully)

this is a brilliant chicken recipe. i made this last night and thought it was so tasty. i used mozarella and cheddar like the recipe states but added some garlic puree and a teaspoon of cheap mustard i had in. quite a bit of the filling ran out of the chicken breasts but the chicken had lots of flavour all the same. my husband and kids thought it was great and asked me to make again.

Lovely with Boursin!

Lovely and very easy. We had it with garlic and herb soft cheese stuffing and omitted the mustard. Served with rapeseed oil rosted thyme potatoes, broccoli and carrots. Would probably be even nicer with more sophisticated veg such as wilted spinach and mushrooms.
