Ingredients

  • 5 tbsp soft cheese
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tbsp chopped or frozen parsley or ½ tbsp dried
  • 2 skinless chicken breasts
  • 6 slices pancetta
  • oil, for brushing

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Mix together the soft cheese, garlic and herbs with some seasoning. Cut a slit in the side of each chicken breast, ensuring you don’t pierce through the other side. Using your fingers, make a bigger pocket and stuff the creamy mix inside. Season the chicken breasts, then wrap 3 slices of pancetta around each, covering the pocket tightly.

  • STEP 2

    Put on a baking tray, brush with a little oil and bake for 18-20 mins until cooked through.
