Instructions

Butterfly the chicken breasts

  • Take a breast, place on its side and cut through a third of the way. Once done open it up and place to one side. Do this to all 6 chicken breasts.

Filling

  • Fry the onion in oil over a medium heat for about 3-4 minutes. Add the mushrooms and garlic powder and cook for 3 minutes. Add the spinach and cook for a further 2 minutes to reduce down. Remove from heat and place to one side.
  • Place in a bowl the cream cheese, parmesan and mix. Once cooled down add the onions, mushrooms and spinach mix.
  • Spoon the mix into the chicken breasts, wrap the filled chicken breasts with streaky bacon. Place on a non-stick roasting tin and cook for 40-45 minutes at 180C until the chicken is thoroughly cooked.

Serve with baby new potatoes and vegetables.
