Midweek Treat – Spinach and Goats Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts and salad

Youngest is back home for an interview for a seasonal job, I am glad to say he got the job, so we are really pleased for him πŸ€—

As a treat, I am making Chicken breast, stuffed with Goats Cheese and Spinach, wrapped in bacon 😍 This will be served with a baked potato and salad.

I bought a meat pack from Muscle Foods this month, and as part of that pack, there were 12 Chicken Breasts – I treat these like I would a steak, as they are an expensive cut of meat in comparison to my more favoured Chicken Thighs.

The rest of the ingredients are from Aldi, my local shop. A bag of spinach, a block of soft Goats Cheese, and accompaniments.

To start I will some spinach with a knob of butter in a pan, with a grated quarter of a nutmeg – this is left to cool and drain ready to be chopped and mixed with the Goats Cheese.

On a food prep board, I lay out 3 bits of smoked streaky bacon for each breast, lay the breast, bottom side facing up.

I use a sharpe knife to create a pocket in the breast

put a spoonful of the cheese mix into the Β pocket

wrap the bacon around each breast and place onto a baking tray ‘seam down’.

I always microwave my jacket spuds for 10 minutes, before popping into a hot oven (300) for 20 minutes, the breast go in at the same time.

Serve up with a nice bit of salad – yummm x

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
