These delightful parcels of tender and moist chicken, filled with herby cheese and wrapped in crispy bacon, these simple chicken parcels is what you need in your life.

The hardest part is waiting for the filling to chill, but trust me, this is crucial to stopping the cheese simply oozing out and being wasted.

You could have these prepped up I the morning and pop them together and in the oven in a flash. I like mine with a serve of steamed greens. You can serve these chicken parcels with any of our low-carb and keto side dishes such as these Easy Veggie Ranch Salad, Quick Gremolata Cauli-Rice, Skillet Almond Green Beans, Creamed Spinach, or Garlic & Lemon Roasted Broccoli. Enjoy!
