Goats Cheese and Thyme Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Goats Cheese and Thyme Stuffed Chicken Breasts

This chicken dish is the perfect thing for a romantic meal with your loved one and forms part of my Valentines Menu this year.  I served the chicken with buttered noodles and broccoli but you could quite easily serve it with some potatoes, or even vegetable rice, whatever tickles your fancy really. 


| Serves: 2  | Prep Time: 20 Minutes | Cook Time: 45 Minutes | Total Time: 1 Hour 5 Minutes |


  • 2 Skinless Boneless Chicken Breasts
  • 100g Crottin Goats Cheese
  • 2 TSP Fresh Thyme Leaves plus 2 extra sprigs
  • 6 rashers of Smoked Streaky Bacon
  • 250g Vine Tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • To serve, Buttered Noodles and Broccoli


  • Step 1: Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Split the chicken breasts almost in half from one long side and open them out like a book. Bat them out a little with a rolling pin to flatten them. Put half the goat's cheese on each piece of chicken and sprinkle with the thyme leaves, season with salt and pepper. Fold the chicken over to enclose the cheese, then wrap each one in three slices of the bacon.
  • Step 2: Lightly oil a shallow gratin dish, then arrange the tomatoes over the base. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper and thyme sprigs. Sit the chicken on top.
  • Step 3: Bake for 40-45 mins until the bacon is crisp and golden and serve with the buttered noodles and broccoli.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
