Cut a slit in the side of each chicken breast, ensuring that you don't pierce through the other side. 4. Using your fingers, make a pocket and stuff the cheese mix inside. 5. Season the chicken breasts, then wrap two slices of smoked bacon around each, covering the pocket tightly. 6. Put on a baking tray, drizzle with Irish rapeseed oil and cook for 18-20 mins until cooked through but still moist, and the juices run clear. 7. Serve with a nice summer salad, baked potatoes, and vegetables. Enjoy!
