  • 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.

Made this for the second time - stuck to the recipe apart from wrapping in pancetta. Really tasty and chicken stays really moist but most of the filling had dripped out into the bottom of the tray. Was wrapped really well so might try using cocktail sticks next time aswell to hold it together.

As a lot of reviewers have done I replaced the Mozzarella with cream cheese, added some crushed garlic & replaced chicken breast fillet with Chicken thighs. Turned out really well despite a power cut half way through the cooking. Although tasty thought it the cheesy taste a little overpowering so may try leaving out the cheddar cheese next time.

I made this recipe for my boyfriend and he loved it (me too!)!! Had to shop about a bit to get the ingredients as not all readily available in my small Portuguese town! I served it with mini garlic baked potatoes!!

I made for two peiople so I halved the ingredients. It was ok but too dry. I will try again using Boursin instead of mozzarella as suggested by Amir.

Amazing!! I also used Boursin instead of mozerella.

I followed the Boursin suggestion because I imagine it melts to more of a sauce compared to mozzarella. I kept all other ingredients the same and it was a huuuuge success. As a vegetarian i'm always unsure about what meat recipes will work but this one had my boyfriend literally licking his plate clean and he's the type that needs a knife and fork to eat a pizza (ridiculous french 'table manners')
