After a good hour of browsing for ideas, this Prune Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Chicken Breast was born. Oh and I served it in a pool of a simple but delicious gravy.

Our contains more meat and less fat. It’s more like a British version of bacon, I guess. However, it doesn’t matter at all, because for this recipe you can use any bacon you like!

    I am not a fan of prunes myself (although my husband is), but bacon wrapped chicken is always the way to go for a comforting meal.

    Oh that looks like a delicious midweek meal and easy too. I love smoked streaked bacon here in the UK, that’s my personal favourite 😀

    I wouldn’t have come up with this combo in a million years but it sounds delicious. Love the combo of chicken, bacon and figs! Thanks.

      Not figs, but prunes, ha! But it’s an interesting idea, though. I’ll try using figs next time 😉
