    Serves: 4 

    • 500g chicken breast fillets
    • 100g cream cheese

    • oil, as needed for cooking

    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Halve the chicken breast fillets lengthways into pieces that are about 1cm thick. Place between two pieces of cling film and hammer lightly with a meat mallet or rolling pin to flatten just a little more so that they will roll easily yet hold their shape when cooked. Remove the cling film and lay on a work surface.
    2. In a bowl, combine the cream cheese, chopped herbs and garlic and mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste. Spread the filling along the centre of the fillets then roll up each piece securing with a cocktail stick. Wrap each roll in a slice of bacon.
    3. Warm a little oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Place the rolls in the pan and cook on all sides for about 15 minutes until the bacon is browned and the chicken is no longer pink in the centre. Remove from the heat and serve hot.

    Wow!!! Ok, I oven cooked them instead of frying and I used two strips of bacon one around the middle and one lengthways to keep the cream cheese mix inside, but I will definitely be making these again. They're simply scrummy and so easy to make too. Might try wrapping them with parma ham next time. Either way. Yum!  -  25 Feb 2017
