  4. Meanwhile, use a sharp knife to slice a pocket into each chicken breast
  5. Fill each pocket with some of the grate Pilgrims Choice Mature Cheddar
  6. Wrap a rasher of streaky bacon around chicken breast, tucking a sprig of thyme into each one
  7. Arrange on top of the vegetables
  8. Season and roast for a further 20 minutes
