This chicken roulade (or roll) has a wonderful mixture of smooth cream cheese with bacon and almonds, and a hint of olives.

It is a bit fiddly to make, but well worth the effort, as the taste is very delicate and flavours are brilliant mixed together.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 35 minutes
Makes: 5 servings

Ingredients
2 large or 4 smaller chicken breasts
125 g Philadelphia cream cheese, crumbled
65 g shortcut bacon, chopped
cup slivered almonds
cup pitted Kalamata olives, chopped
1/3 cup breadcrumbs
1 small egg
1 tbsp chopped oregano
Salt & pepper to taste
Potatoes (optional)
cup white wine
cup chicken stock
1-2 tsp cornflour, blended with 1 tbsp water

Method
I like my bacon crispy so I fried this first though you need not do this when using shortcut bacon with no fat on it.

Carefully cut a pocket out of each chicken breast being careful not to cut right through.

Add the blended cornflour and any juices from the chicken and continue stirring until thickened.
Slice the chicken and place on serving plates, and top with the sauce. I also cooked broccolini while the chicken was in the oven, and heated some left over pumpkin with it.
