Bacon Wrapped stuffed Chicken Breast Asparagus and Poached Egg

It’s the end of my paid working week, and I am blooming hungry – the low carb thing is going well, but I forgot to take my lunch 😳 But my jeans already feel a bit more comfortable – I never weigh, I go by what I can fit into 🤣

Tonight I am making Herbed cheese stuffed Chicken Breast wrapped in smokey bacon, Asparagus and Poached egg for me – jacket spuds and salad for the men.

I started by defrosting 3 Iceland frozen chicken breasts – they are huge 😆

I carefully make a ‘pocket’ in each one,

add a 3rd of a pack of Herbed soft cheese. (I love this Aldi cheese 😋)

Lay 3 or 4 bacon rashers out – depending on the size of your breasts (no sniggering at the back 🤣)

place the Chicken ‘pocket’ side up onto the bacon, carefully wrap each Breast

pop into a lined ovenproof tray.

These can be cooked in a hot oven (180) for approx 30 minutes, till cooked through.

I am steaming the Asparagus whilst the egg poaches, I use the Thermomix like I did Here

If you didn’t know, if you bend the Asparagus spear, it will break where the most tender part starts – don’t throw the ends, freeze and add risottos, soups etc

the jacket spuds for Hubby and youngest spend 10 minutes in the microwave before going in with the chicken, on a separate tray for 30 minutes.

Youngest is working 12 hr shifts for the next 4 days, so I have made his work food too.

Breakfasts – Greek Yoghurt and a little pot of granola
Lunches – Chicken salad wraps or Ham salad rolls
Dinners – Chicken Tikka and rice or ginger chicken and vegetable Cous Cous
Loads of fruit etc too

What would he do without me 🙄

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...
