Brie and bacon chicken


What you will need:
(for two)
2 skinless chicken breasts
4-6 slices of bacon
4 thin slices of brie
1 garlic clove
Mixed herbs or pesto
Half an onion (optional)
Pepper and NO salt (the bacon has enough of that)

Serve with a side veg and either pasta or potatoes or even a nice green salad.

Pre-heat your oven to 200C. Slice the chicken horizontally but make sure you don’t slice all the way through and leave one side attached.  Open up the chicken so it looks a bit like a heart and place two slice of brie, half of a chopped garlic, herbs and pepper. Close up the chicken and wrap it with 3 slices of bacon. The bacon will act as a plaster round the slit chicken so that the brie stays in the chicken as much as possible.

Place both chicken breasts in an oven dish.

If you decide to add some sliced onions (does make it yummy) then add just a little olive oil to the onions and with your hands make sure it covers all the onions (this will stop them burning). Then add a tiny bit of water (so it covers about a millimeter of the dish), you don’t need much with this dish as bacon now a days always seems to be full of it.

Place in the oven for about 30 minutes, check on the chicken half way through.

This shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes to prepare. It’s a very easy meal to make and is really full of flavours.
