Bacon Wrapped and Stuffed Chicken Breast

6 Feb

Hey peeps! Sorry I have been a bit MIA in the last week. I’ve been preoccupied with a full week training course but that’s all over now so programming will presume as per usual! I’ve got measurements coming up soon that I will report on so keep your skinny little fingers crossed for me!

I’ve cooked some lovely and healthy things over the past week and this… well, this isn’t really one of them! Whilst this isn’t especially healthy it’s not particularly un-healthy. It’s an example of what I consider a treat meal.

It stemmed from me having two rashers of bacon leftover in the fridge. I thought they would pair nicely with the two chicken breasts I had set aside for our dinner.

It’s pretty simple really. Doesn’t even require an ingredients list. Firstly, preheat your oven to to 180 degrees then just grab a chicken breast and make a pocket in it’s flesh. Spoon a little olive tepanade inside and stuff in a little light feta cheese. You could also use light mozzarella or tasty cheese. Insert a few leaves of baby spinach, wrap the chicken breast with bacon (or prosciutto) and secure with a toothpick.

Grill the chicken in a pan over medium heat for 2 minutes a side or until bacon is browned. Take out of the pan and place in an oven-proof dish and bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Serve with a fresh garden salad dressed in extra virgin olive oil and white wine vinegar.
