Chicken wrapped in bacon

Succulentand moist chicken breast, wrapped in streaky bacon and stuffed with sun dried tomatoes. Make sure that bacon ends are underneath the chicken. Bacon shrinks when cooking and the dish would look rather unattractive. Don’t cook your beans, just bring them to boil befor frying. Serve with crispy potato slices (our favourite) or basmati rice. Either way – tastes great! Enjoy!
