Mustard-stuffed Chicken - with a veggie version too!

Everyone says this is good, tasty and delicious - and the beauty of it is, it's so easy!

Serves Four
125g ball mozzarella, torn into small pieces
50g strong cheddar cheese, grated
1 tbsp. wholegrain mustard
4 skinless boneless chicken breast fillets

8 smoked streaky bacon rashers

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.
Lightly season, place on a baking sheet and roast for 20-25 mins.

How about this recipe tip - make it veggie:
Cheesy baked mushrooms:
Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. 
Mix the mozzarella and cheddar with 1 tbsp. pesto, then spoon into the hollows of 4 Portobello mushrooms.
Place on a baking tray and roast for 15 mins or until the mushrooms are softened and the cheese is bubbling.

From an original idea here

This chicken dish goes well with mashed swede or green beans or broccoli, but you may have an alternative choice!

A variety of recipe ideas are found within this blog, and not all may be suitable for you. If you may have any food allergies, or underlying health issues these must always be taken into account. If you are a diabetic and not sure how certain foods may affect your blood sugars, test is best, i.e. use your meter.

All the best Jan
