Ingredients
  • 5 x 5 oz boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 5 slices regular cut bacon
  • 7 figs or ½ cup dried figs, chopped
  • ½ cup pear, chopped (I used anjou)
  • 100 grams or ½ cup lower fat soft goat cheese
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F
  2. Pound your chicken breasts in between 2 sheets of plastic wrap or parchment paper. To about ½ inch thick and even thickness.
  3. Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the chopped figs, chopped pear and goat cheese. Mix together with a spoon or your hands until combined.
  4. Using a sharp knife, place an incision through each chicken breast to create a pocket. Try and slice it almost all the way through, and fold it over. Sort of like an open book. Don't worry if it tears.
  5. Take a spoonful of the filling and divide between the 5 chicken breasts.
  6. Roll the raw chicken around the filling. Then take a slice of bacon and roll it around each chicken breast to help hold it together tightly.
  7. Place each wrapped chicken breast in an oven proof dish, leaving a little space in between each one.
  8. Bake at 375 degrees F uncovered for about 35 minutes until the bacon has browned and chicken is cooked.
