An updated version of my most popular recipe. It's quick and easy, but mouth-wateringly delicious. 
Prep Time: 5 min

Cook Time: 40 min

Total Time: 45 min 

For the sauce
  1. 1 red onion or 3 shallots
  2. Half a teaspoon of chilli powder (or more, if you like it hot)
  3. 400ml of passata
  4. 4 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
  5. A good shake of Lea and Perrins
  6. 4 tablespoons of artificial sweetener
For the chicken
  1. 4 chicken breasts
  2. 8 slices of back bacon
  3. 120g mature reduced-fat cheddar
  4. Veg and chips, to serve
To make the sauce
  1. Peel and finely chop the onion/shallots. Put in a frying pan, sprinkle over the chilli powder and fry until soft
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir. Keep the sauce on a medium and stir it occasionally whilst you prepare the chicken
To make the chicken
  1. Pre-heat the oven to about 210C. Take four ovenproof dishes that are just large enough to serve your chicken in. Spray with Fry Light
  2. Slit the chicken breasts down the middle, taking care not to go through the bottom or sides. You want to end up with a pocket. Place the chicken breasts in the ovenproof dishes
  3. Pour the sauce over the chicken breasts, making sure it goes into the middle of the breast. Lay the bacon over the top of the chicken
  4. Bake the chicken for 20 minutes. Sprinkle over the cheese, then bake for 10 minutes more
  5. Serve with chips and green veg
