Ingredients

2 chicken fillets ( approx. 250g)

½ cup blue cheese, crumbled

3 slices of bacon

2 tbsps olive oil

1 ½ cup spinach, cut in pieces

1 tbsps chives, cut in pieces

1 clove of garlic

Method

Preheat the oven to 200C. Heat 1 ½  tbsps of olive oil in a pan over a low/medium heat. Mince the garlic and add to the pan cooking gently until tender. Add the spinach to the pan and cook briefly until just wilted. Remove the spinach and garlic from the pan and set aside. Roughly chop one rasher of bacon and add to the pan, cooking through until golden brown. Squeeze any excess liquid from the spinach and add to the pan along with the bacon and stir to combine. Remove from the heat and stir in the blue cheese and chopped fresh chives. Set the mixture aside to cool completely.Whilst the mixture cools, carefully run a sharp knife along the side of each chicken breast creating a pocket for the stuffing. Be careful not to cut all the way through the chicken. Once cold, divide the stuffing mixture evenly between each chicken breast, completely filling the pocket. Wrap one rasher of bacon around each chicken breast to contain the stuffing and seal closed with toothpicks.  Place the chicken on a shallow oven tray and drizzle with remaining oil. Bake for 22-25 minutes or until completely cooked through and the juices run clear.
