Pesto & Tomato Chicken Paired with Maison Joseph Drouhin Saint-Veran 2013

This is a really simple recipe that I created once by accident with the contents of my fridge and have made endlessly since as it’s quick, easy, everyone likes it and even Harry can make it!


  • Chicken thigh fillets (allow two per person)
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Cream cheese
  • Pesto
  • Thin cut streaky bacon


Open up the thigh fillets and fill each one with a lump of cream cheese, a tea-spoon of pesto and a couple of  quartered cherry tomatoes, close the thighs and wrap them individually in a slice or two of thin cut streaky bacon.  Fill an earthenware dish with the chicken thigh.  Surround the chicken with a few more chopped cherry tomatoes, season and drizzle with olive oil.

Cook in the middle of the oven at 200 degrees for around 30 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through, the bacon is crispy and the juices are bubbling.

Serve with new potatoes and a green salad and a chilled glass of Joseph Drouhin Saint-Veran 2013
