Handy Hint

The filling can be changed to any that you fancy or any filling you have in your fridge which needs using up, so a really cheap meal.


1. Preheat oven to 200C/400F/Gas mark 6
2. Use a very sharp knife carefully make a horizontal split in the chicken breast but do not cut through.
3. To make the filling, beat the cream cheese and chives together in a bowl then divide into four portions, then using a teaspoon fill each slit in the chicken with the cream cheese mixture. Push the sides together to keep the filling in place.
4. Wrap each breast in two rashers of bacon and place in an oven proof dish for 25/30 mins brushing occasionally with olive oil. Season with black pepper.

Delicious and easy, my favourite type of recipe. I used Boursin and diced, sautéed mushrooms for my filling.
