BACON AND NECTARINE-STUFFED CHICKEN RECIPE

Summer in South Africa is unparalleled. This is not just because the sun is shining, but also because it is fruit season and there are so many delicious dishes you can prepare for your family, particularly around the holidays. We feel that everything should be wrapped in bacon, particularly chicken, which is always delicious when combined with bacon. With this dish for chicken breasts filled with bacon and nectarine, you may give the holiday meal a fruity touch.

BACON AND NECTARINE-STUFFED CHICKEN TIPS

In addition to imparting flavour, the sweet and sour citrus also tenderises the chicken while it cooks. The best method for evenly cooking chicken is to flatten and roll it. This recipe calls for the use of plastic wrap and a few toothpicks. You may bake them according to the instructions or throw them on the grill. They go well with crispy potatoes and a nice green salad.

Everything is better when bacon is wrapped around it. Try this recipe for stuffed chicken with bacon and nectarines by Jenny Morris for Juicy Delicious.
