  • 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.

Made this again yesterday. Fabulous every time! Cook for longer than 25mins -more like 35 mins to make sure chicken fully cooked. One of our favourite dishes and so simple to make. Serve with new potatoes and fresh veg of your choice.

Delicious, goes really well with roasted cherry tomatoes, just chuck a few in the roasting tin with them for the last 15 or so minutes

Made this for some guests and was lovely! First time I have tried stuffed chicken, really easy and yummy! One person didn't like mustard so on that one I just used plain cheese and sprinkled some on top and still went down well!

Delicious recipe and super easy and quick to make for a mid week dinner.

The stuffing leaked so much that there was barely any left inside the chicken :( I'd like to know where I go wrong, as the same thing happened with chicken kievs.

If anyone is interested, I usually make the chicken in advance and refrigerate it well beforehand, plus I close the opening with a small skewer or a couple of toothpicks (just remember to pull them out before serving!) A little of the filling may escape, but it certainly helps.

Same thing happened to me. I ended up pouring the stuffing over the chicken. Taste was great but have no idea how to get it to say inside the chicken

very nice recipe. Easy to make and cooked perfectly. I did however make a creamy mustard sauce as it needed something extra

So simple, but so delicious. I added a sprig of Rosemary under the bacon and it worked really well.
