Chicken breast in Port with Blue Cheese pockets
A relatively simple recipe, but an absolutely delicious treat.
Per Person
1 Chicken breast.
2 rashers smoked middle bacon
100 ml Port wine
50 g Blue cheese~~~ we used Creamy Irish Blue.
Marinate the chicken breasts in the Port for at least six hours.

Split open the chicken breast with a sharp knife.

Stuff the Chicken breast with the blue cheese.

Wrap two rashers of bacon around each chicken breast; one clockwise, and one anti clockwise, this ensures that the wrap remains tight and the melted cheese doesn't leak out during cooking.

Place on to a lightly oiled baking tray, and bake in a hot oven for about 45 minutes.

Using the Port that was originally used in the marinade, add a little more Port, a dash of water, a little Salt & Pepper, a pinch of Tarragon, and a little cornflower to thicken, and make a sauce.
