Chicken Kilpatrick

I wandered past a Lenards store the other day and they were selling chicken kilpatricks, which was a combination of bacon, camembert and worcestershire sauce wrapped inside a chicken breast fillet. I thought that was a really cool idea, so DD and I decided to save some money, buy the ingredients and try and make them ourselves.

I mixed some softened camembert, chopped bacon and a dash of worcestershire sauce together and rolled it up in pounded chicken breast fillets and secured my little parcels with skewers. I bathed them in more worcestershire and baked them in a 200 degree C oven, turning and basting every 10 or so minutes until the chicken was cooked through.

Unfortunately, they didn't come out of the oven looking very photogenic, but they tasted pretty good. The camembert melted which disappointed me a little, because I really didn't make the connection that camembert was cheese and cheese melts when it gets hot. Sometimes I have really dumb moments. The melted camembert worked out quite well though, as it mixed with the worcestershire sauce and really kept the chicken moist and flavourful.

It was quite a good result for an experiment, I was really happy with how it turned out.
