What sort of chicken? I slit open chicken breasts so they lay out flatter and stuff with mushrooms, garlic, bit of something like brie or roule cheese, roll it up and wrap in bacon. I tend to oven bake them for however lont it usually takes to oven bake a chicken breast!

Sounds lovely but it's chicken fillets so a no go. Plus dh won't eat mushrooms and the only cheese he'll eat is chedder. Thanks anyway!!!!

Like the mini fillet things or the chunky breast fillets? I meant the chunky breast fillets. You can stuff them with anything.

a satay style peanut marianade? peanut butter, olive oil, garlic, paprika...?

The mini fillet things.

I've twisted strips of bacon round mini fillets before. Other than that, you're kind of stuck with marianades. Or kind of casserolling them so they have a sauce/gravy to go with them.

I find they can go a bit dry if you're not careful (and I'm not a careful cook ).

get some philidelphia or the cheese you have), creme fraiche and pesto
mix it up in a bowl
flatten out chicken breasts
put a dollop of mixture on chicken and sort of roll it
wrap in tin foil and roast in oven (on about 180-200) for about 25 ish minutes
