Preheat oven to 200 ̊C/ 400 ̊F.

Line a tray with foil.

Mix the soft cheese, basil, olives and salt and pepper in a bowl.

Cut a pocket into each chicken breast – large enough to add the stuffing.

Divide the soft cheese mixture between the two chicken breasts.

Place on the tray.

Wrap a bacon rasher around each chicken breast and top with the sliced tomato.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked.
Store any leftover chicken in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
