** INTRODUCTION **
I have decided to share one of my own recipes with you, after eating out at restaurant years ago, and ordering this meal, I decided to make it myself and tastes just like what I ordered, made me feel proud. Maybe this recipe will tempt you to make it as well. There is not much to it but it tastes delicious and very filling, ok it might not be very healthy but a one off meal won't hurt you.
** INGREDIENTS **
You will need:-
1 chicken breast per person
2 rinds of bacon per chicken breast, smoky or not
1 cheese slice per chicken breast or what cheese you prefer
You can add herbs if you required, but I didn't.
** PREPARATION & COOKING **
Preparation starts by preheating the oven at gas mark 6, 204°C, 400°F. Place the chicken breast in a frying pan with a drop of oil or knob of butter, not too much. Whilst that is doing cut the rind of the bacon if needed, and put to one side. Keep turning the chicken until all the chicken is sealed, once it has, then drain of the fat, leave on a bit of kitchen roll to drain off.
Place the chicken on a baking tray, oven proof dish or a roasting tin, wrap the chicken in the bacon, until fully wrapped, and place in the preheated oven and cook until the bacon is cooked to your liking, I normally leave it in the oven for about 30 - 45 minutes.
Once the bacon is cooked, take it out of the oven, leave it in the dish, place a cheese slice on top of the bacon, or what ever cheese you're using, I have used different cheeses in the past but I have found the cheese slices work very well. Put the dish under the grill on a medium to high heat for a few minutes until the cheese has melted. Once the cheese as melted its time to serve up, please neatly on a plate, I normally serve this with chunky chips and peas, I have also serve this with salad and both meals were delicious.
** FINAL THOUGHTS **
1 of these is enough for one person; they are very filling and very delicious. I hope maybe that you will try these for yourself and if you do please let me know what you thought. I enjoy making this and my partner and son enjoys these too, and I am glad I have tried to make these myself, you can add what you like to the chicken I just wanted to make what I had at the restaurant and I am pleased I pulled it off. Give it a try.
