It's a perfect recipe for midweek - or any day, really :)


  • 1kg small new potatoes, scrubbed and halved
  • 500g Chantenay carrots, halved lengthways
  • 2 small parsnips, quartered
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 100g Pilgrims Choice Mature Cheddar, grated
  • 4 rashers streaky bacon
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan oven 180°C, Gas Mark 6

2. Put the potatoes into a large roasting pan with the carrots and parsnips

3. Add the oil and toss to coat. Roast for 20 minutes

4. Meanwhile, use a sharp knife to slice a pocket into each chicken breast

5. Fill each pocket with some of the grated cheese

6. Wrap a rasher of streaky bacon around chicken breast, tucking a sprig of thyme into each one

7. Arrange on top of the vegetables

8. Season and roast for a further 20 minutes

9. Sprinkle the remaining grated cheese over the chicken and cook for another 10-15 minutes until melted and golden

Tip: You could make this recipe with 4 pieces of pork fillet instead of chicken. Just split the pieces and fill with the grated cheddar, wrapping the bacon around as before.
