Often we think that some of our favourites meals are tricky and time consuming. I love to share recipes that you can easily recreate at home using simple ingredients and techniques.
These stuffed chicken breasts only contain five main ingredients and a few pantry staples. So simple!
As you will know, I am the queen of shopping a bargain, I always look out for specials and price deals and every ingredient I have used here today meets that brief.
All of these ingredients are available at your local countdown as part of their Great Price range. Everything is super clearly marked instore to you can look out for those tags and compare to your usual brands.
There is some worry around baking chicken breasts and these becoming dry, with this technique of stuffing and wrapping there is no fear of that. I have broken down the steps in my video to show you just how easy this is.
In todays recipe I have used the following ingredients
Countdown Chicken Breasts
Countdown Streaky Honey Bacon
Food Snob Feta
Countdown Baby Leaf Spinach
Mainland Grated Cheese
It is that simple! A little added olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper to enhance the flavour and you will love how easy this one is.
To begin you saute the spinach to wilt this down with the olive oil and garlic, this absorbs the flavour much more than if you were to pop the spinach in whole, and of course reduces the fresh spinach in size by a considerable amount!
Then once this has cooled slightly I crumble the feta into the spinach and add the grated cheese.
Then it is a matter of slicing through the chicken breast, removing any skin if there is some. You want to slice approximately 3/4 of the way through the breast, careful not to cut yourself! I find if I place my left hand on top of the breast and slice carefully about 1 cm below the top of the meat I get a clean cut.
Then stuff the breast with the prepared spinach mix and then wrap the bacon. This can be a little tricky at first, you want to end up with all of the ends of the bacon underneath the chicken breast where possible.
Or you can tuck them in to the bacon strip beside them. You will use 2-3 strips of bacon depending on the size of your chicken breasts.
Then once they are ready to go in the baking dish you bake for around an hour. The bacon will be golden brown and the chicken will be cooked though once you test with a knife. You want the juices to run clear and the chicken to no longer be pink.
This is beautiful served hot from the oven with a lovely fresh salad to cut through the richness of the chicken, serve with a side of roast vegetables or some full flavoured rice and you will have a meal to impress.

What would you suggest as a dairy and egg free stuffing?
You could just omit the cheese components if you like – or adding mushrooms would be lovely too.
Looks so yummy , quick question what temperature do you cook in the oven for the hour please?? Was thinking around 170c or less for fan forced?? Thanks in advance recycledmummy.
Hi, the oven temperature is in the recipe above in step one, if you are using fan forced often can you reduce the temperature by 20C. Enjoy
Have made this recipe twice now and it’s a huge hit for our family. So delicious thankyou!
So glad to hear that
This recipe sounds delicious. Would it be suitable to freeze?
Yes you can. Just freeze wrapped well in plastic wrap and in an airtight container, once the chicken has cooled. You can freeze them up to 3 months and then thaw first, then heat in a 175CF oven for 20-30 minutes until hot inside. Sprinkling water over the top so that the chicken stays moist.
