    Method

    • Preheat oven to gas mark 4 (180ºC, 350ºF). Take each chicken breast and cut a slit in the side of the breast to create a pocket.

    • In the ‘pocket’, place 2 sage leaves. Take half of the Stilton cheese and press into each pocket. Push the edges of the pocket together to cover the cheese and enclose inside the chicken.

    • Wrap 2 strips of pancetta around the chicken, and secure with a cocktail stick if you wish. Place on a hot baking tray andcook for 10 mins until chicken is tender.

    • Serve with creamy mash potato and seasonal steamed green vegetables.
