    Probably the most widely-used oil in cooking, olive oil is pressed from fresh olives. It's…


  1. Skin 2 chicken breasts, then cut a pocket in each side and stuff each with 25g/1oz soft goat’s cheese.

  2. Wrap each breast in 2 rashers rindless streaky bacon, tucking in a few fresh sage leaves, then put the breasts in a baking dish and season. Spoon over 1 tbsp olive oil.

  3. Roast the chicken breasts in a baking dish, uncovered, for 30-35 minutes in a preheated oven (190C/gas 5/fan oven 170C). To check if they are done, insert a sharp knife into the centre of a parcel and leave it for a few seconds, if the chicken is cooked the tip should feel very hot when you pull it out and touch it. The chicken should also feel very firm when pressed with the back of a fork.

  4. Serve with a gratin of potatoes and leeks.

This was okay, but the mustard stuffed chicken on this site is so much better - I will stick to that one from now on (and for those who don't like mustard - neither do I, but you can't taste it as mustard, it just adds a piquancy). The other thing is that I always think that pancetta is better than bacon wrapped around anything - it's thinner and goes lovely and crispy

This was a fantistic! I used thyme leaves as I couldnt get hold of sage. I also made a sauce by adding a little more goats cheese and a half a glass of wine to the yummy bits left in the dish after cooking, I just reduced this by half whilst keeping the chicken warm. You simply must try this dish!
