    Hiya, one of my fave free red recipies is:

    1 chicken breast
    2 babybell lights (Hex A)
    2 - 3 pieces of lean bacon

    Make a pocket in the chicken breast and place the 2 babybell inside. Wrap the bacon round the chicken breast and place on a baking tray cook on medium heat in the oven for 25 mins and serve with fave veg.
