Pan frying to crisp the bacon
Wrapped in bacon and vacuum sealed

Anne made Cheese stuffed pancetta chicken breasts for me last year and I tried a sous vide version , Sous vide prosciutto wrapped chicken stuffed with garlicky parsley butter which was a bit of a failure.

This is a bacon version and was a fabulous success.

Once the chicken has been cooked surrounded by the bacon, the bacon clings tightly to the chicken allowing it to be finished by pan frying.

Take care to choose 2 equal sized chicken breasts if you are buying them pre-packaged. Mine were obscured by the label, resulting in one huge piece and one rather small.
