Chicken breast in Port with Blue Cheese pockets

A relatively simple recipe, but an absolutely delicious treat.

Per Person

1 Chicken breast.

2 rashers smoked middle bacon

100 ml Port wine

50 g Blue cheese~~~ we used Creamy Irish Blue.

Marinate the chicken breasts in the Port for at least six hours.



Split open the chicken breast with a sharp knife.



Stuff the Chicken breast with the blue cheese.



Wrap two rashers of bacon around each chicken breast; one clockwise, and one anti clockwise, this ensures that the wrap remains tight and the melted cheese doesn't leak out during cooking.



Place on to a lightly oiled baking tray, and bake in a hot oven for about 45 minutes.



Using the Port that was originally used in the marinade, add a little more Port, a dash of water, a little Salt & Pepper, a pinch of Tarragon, and a little cornflour to thicken, and make a sauce.



An exceptional meal for someone special:

That looks simple and easy to do and I bet it is really, really nice.  Have all the ingredients in so will try it for tomorrow lunch.  Brilliant, thank you.

I like the idea of the port gravy to go with it as well
