Method

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Put the stuffing mix in a bowl and pour over 200ml boiling water. Mix well, then set aside for 5 mins. Transfer 100g to a bowl and mix with the soft cheese. Press the rest of the stuffing into a small, greased, ovenproof dish. Make a pocket in the thickest part of each chicken breast (being careful not to cut through) and spoon a quarter of the cheesy stuffing into each.
  2. Put the bacon under a sheet of clingfilm and roll out to around twice the size; remove and discard the rind. Top each chicken breast with a sage leaf and wrap with a bacon rasher, tucking the ends underneath. Transfer to a greased baking tray.
  3. Bake the potatoes on a baking tray for 10 mins, then add the chicken and the stuffing dish. Cook for 5 mins, then reduce the temperature to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Bake for 20 mins or until the chicken is cooked through.
  4. Meanwhile, boil the beans in salted water for 4 mins; drain. Serve with the chicken, stuffing, potatoes and gravy, if you like.
