Cut all fat off chicken breasts and slice lengthways down the middle of the breast. Careful not to cut all the way through or the stuffing falls out the bottom.
Mix into a bowl the feta cheese, cream cheese, spinach, sun dried tomatoes, onion, garlic, salt and pepper (all the ingredients except the bacon) until is becomes a paste.
Spoon the filling into the slices of the chicken breast, doesn't matter if you've added a bit extra to the mix, you can overfill the beasts if need be, the bacon keeps it moist.
Wrap each breast with two rashers bacon, and fasten with a skewer underneath.
Place on a parchment-lined baking tray and bake at 180 C / Gas 4 for about 1 hour. Do check in from time to time after 30 minutes as some ovens do vary. The bacon should be reasonably crispy and the chicken will be wonderfully moist inside.
Makes far too much for 2 chicken breasts, however, it's so delicious I was happy to eat it again the next day! I went posh and used Parma ham, and on the second day added a few flakes of dried chilli.
It's so easy to make and turns a plain chicken breast into something special. - 16 Mar 2014
