  • 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.

Goes together well with spinach pasta too:) Also, did a little improvisation by adding pesto and cheddar in place of mozzarella, as I had run out, works great. Mustard and pesto is a great combination for this dish. Overall, great recipe, Cheers!

Excellent recipe and very easy to make. I seasoned with some olive oil and little sea salt and pepper. Total perfection with steamed veggies, potato wedges and peppercorn sauce.

Delicious! I made some amendments like other commenters - used garlic and herb boursin and parma ham. One of the easiest dinners ever - just assemble chicken and leave in oven until it's done. Had it with new potatoes and tenderstem broccolli.

Made this so many times now and always a great favourite. You can't go wrong it's so tasty. Cook for at least 50 mins tho to make sure it's cooked through Serve with new potatoes, carrots and string beans My hubby and grown up daughter love it for evening dinner or for lunch next day. My daughters friends always comment on how good it smells and she tells them how tasty it is too! Have a go ! It's so simple

What an amazing tasty dish!! Made this tonight and all plates are clean, so delicious. Made it with baby potatoes, tomatoes on vine (with the chicken) and spring greens with lemon and garlic dressing (also on this website) YUM!

I made this last night for friends…it is so easy and delicious. I used peppered boursin cheese (on reading other posts) and it stayed together well despite not having cocktail sticks. I did baste the exposed chicken ends from time to time so as not to dry. Will certainly made this again.

I made this last night for friends….delicious! Easy and quick yet really impressive tasting and looking. I used peppered boursin cheese simply because of others' comments…and it was just lovely. I made it ahead of time so the cheese mixture had a chance to settle a little. Didn't use cocktail sticks but it all seemed to stay together when cooking. I did baste the exposed chicken ends a little during baking just to make sure they didn't dry. Will certainly make this again.

This is SOOOOOO good and easy! Made it over a busy weekend. Used boursin cheese instead of mozzarella. As previous comment, I chilled the whole assembled and when the oven is ready, just pop it in, 25mins of baking is more than suffice! Everyone at the dinner table loves it! Even my cousin who does not like cheese finished her share!

ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!! Made it using suggestions from other comments and used Boursin cheese and parma ham. We served ours on a bed of rocket with balsamic vinegar for a healthier meal. It's our new favourite...can't stop eating it!

Just made this tonight using the suggestions in above comments to sub Boursin cheese & parma ham. It was out of this world! Served it with smashed potatoes and broccolini with sautéed shallots & garlic. Delicious meal!
