  1. Peel and crush the garlic
  2. Finely chop the small white onion
  3. Add to a small bowl with a pinch of salt and plenty of freshly ground black pepper and mix well
  4. Cut a deep slice into the side of each breast to create a pocket
  5. Use half of Le Rustique Camembert wheel, cutting it into eight pieces
  6. Fill each chicken breast with equal amounts of the garlic mixture and two pieces of Camembert cheese
  7. I had a few spare cherry tomatoes so slices them and squeezed them in.
  8. Lay four strips of streaky bacon for each breast and carefully roll the breast up in the bacon.
  9. Add a splash of lemon juice (or lime juice) to each sous vide bag.
  10. Using a fish slice slide each chicken breast into the bag and seal - to save the lemon juice being sucked out, press the seal only button the moment the juice starts to run up the bag.
  11. Cook in a sous vide bath heated to 64° C (147° F) for 2 hours.
  12. Remove from the bag, reserving any juice for making gravy.
  13. Pan fry in butter for 3 or 4 minutes until golden brown.
