******************** Recipe ********************

Wrapped Chicken in Bacon with Hemp Seeds

(for 5 people)

You will need:

  • 5 chicken breasts
  • 5 Cheese slices
  • 5 Back Bacon non-smoked slices (healthier)
  • 2 Tbsp of olive Oil
  • 100 ml of Milk or Buttermilk
  • Seasoning: Salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder, paprika
  • Hemp Seeds Hearts to finish


Let’s Do it:

  • Add the olive oil and the milk in a deep Pyrex – this will go to the oven.
  • Open each breast in the middle, but not all the way. So we have a little pocket
  • Place each cheese slice inside the breast and close the breast
  • Wrap the breast with a slice of the back bacon and place them in the pyrex dish
  • Season all the breasts with whatever season you want. I used those above.
  • Above each breast, sprinkle the hemp seeds hearts. This will make a crispy top (yum!)
  • Cover the pyrex with an aluminium foil and place it in the oven at 180 C Degrees (350 F) for 40 Minutes.
  • After the 40 minutes, take the foil and let it stay in the oven for more 10 minutes.

Serve with Sweet potato chips or/and a salad.

On a High Ball glass place 3 to 4 ice cubes, put 20 ml of gin and fill with Fendiman’s Pink Grapefruit Tonic Water. Add some drops of lemon juice for a kick. Enjoy!
