This stuffed chicken in bacon recipe is amazing. It is absolutely perfect for a family meal or to impress people at a dinner party. Syn Free too so even better 🙂 I can high recommend serving with vegetables, boiled new potatoes or rice.

If you want to make this even more naughty you can add your cheddar cheese healthy extra A allowance underneath the bacon.

Servings: 2
Syns: ZERO


2 Large Skinless Chicken Breasts
6 Unsmoked Bacon Medallions
2 Tbsp Dried Basil
2 Tbsp Quark
1/2 Tsp Mild Chilli Powder
1/2 Tsp Garlic Granules
Salt & Pepper
Cocktail Sticks


  • Pre-heat the oven to 180c and Spritz a baking tray with Frylight to prevent sticking.
  • With a sharp knife, cut a 4 – 5cm slit into the side of each chicken breast. Do not cut all the way through the chicken.
  • Take a small mixing bowl and add Quark, Garlic granules, Chilli Powder, Basil and season with Salt & Pepper. Mix together.
  • Open the chicken breasts and fill each of them with 1 Tbsp of pesto.
  • Wrap 3 Bacon Medallions around each chicken breast covering the slit. Use cocktail sticks to help keep the bacon in place. These will be removed when the chicken is cooked.
  • Place onto the baking tray and spritz each chicken breast with Frylight.
  • Place into the oven for 20-25 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
