Chicken is a great source of protein and a versatile ingredient.

Preheat oven to 200˚C/ 400˚F.

Line a tray with foil.

Mix the cream cheese, basil, olives and salt and pepper in a bowl.

Cut a pocket into each chicken breast – large enough to add the stuffing.

Stuff the soft cheese mixture into the two chicken breasts. Place the chicken on the tray.

Wrap a bacon rasher around each chicken breast and top with the sliced tomato.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked.

Store any leftover chicken in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
