What you need

Ingredients

  • 5 chicken breasts
  • 1 cup  BBQ sauce
  • 3/4 cup passata
  • 1 tbsp thyme leaves
  • Pinch of salt
  • 6 rashers cooked bacon
  • 1 small block cheddar, cut into slices

Hunters chicken is one of those classic pub dishes that has stood the test of time. It's a marvellous thing, a simple combination of the world's most ubiquitous fowl, the people's favourite cheese and the life affirming properties of BBQ sauce. Sit down with one of these bad boys, a plate of chips and a side salad if you like that sort of thing.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/360°F.
  2. Cut slits in the chicken all the way down and lay in a skillet.
  3. Whisk together passata, BBQ sauce, thyme and a little salt then brush all over the chicken breasts. Place a small piece of bacon and cheddar between each slit. Pour over remaining sauce if you wish.
  4. Sprinkle with more salt and bake for 30 - 40 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the cheese has melted and gone all lovely.
  5. Serve with chips and a salad.
