I said in my last post, I would give you the recipe for Boursin Chicken. This is a great family favourite of ours and it is also great for entertaining-easy and impressive!! Isn't that what we all want, when it comes to entertaining?
Confession is good for the soul:) I got this recipe from my very talented sister, who excels in the cooking/baking department-isn't that right sis? She is a non-blogger, but keeps a close eye on how I am doing! Her latest input was to tell me to have a giveaway:) I was one step ahead of her on that one as I was thinking of having a little fun to keep us ever looking for Spring-sooo keep posted!!
Anyway, here is the recipe;
4 chicken breast (or 1 per person)
1 pkt Boursin cheese (this is a soft cheese, garlic and herb flavoured) or equivalent
1 pkt smoked bacon or parma ham
16 ounces chicken stock
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
approx 2tablespoons cornflour in small amount water (to thicken sauce at the end)
Small pouring cream (optional)
1.Heat oven 160 degrees cent (325F) or gas mark 3
2.Cut pocket in chicken breast and stuff with flavoured cheese (good amount)
3.Stretch bacon and wrap around chicken breast to close
4.Put in casserole dish
5.Mix together chicken stock and red wine vinegar and pour into chicken dish
6.Cook in oven for approx 45-60 mins
7.When cooked-pour sauce into another pot and thicken with cornflour as above.
8.Add cream prior to serving if you like it creamier, it also lightens the colour
(Delicious served with roasted or steamed veg and new potatoes) Enjoy!
