Mise en place

  • Preheat the oven to 200° C (400° F - gas 6), [fan oven 180° C & reduce cooking time by 10 mins per hour] and have ready a baking tray or tin.


  1. Cut a slit into the side of each chicken breast to form a pocket and then open out to form a butterfly.
  2. Spread the Philly into the middle of the open chicken breast. Season well and fold over, pressing the sides together.
  3. Wrap each chicken breast with 1 slice of bacon. Place on the baking tray and bake for around 20 minutes for a small chicken breast or 25-30 minutes for a larger chicken breast, ensuring the chicken is thoroughly cooked through before serving.

Serving suggestions

Serve immediately with potatoes and a green vegetable of your choice.
