As per my usual recipes on Skinny Budget this Chicken Mignon recipe will be no different in regards to affordability, easy to make and of course very delicious!
Chicken Breast 500gms (I used 2 large chicken breasts)
Greased Muffin Tray
Rind-less Bacon Rashers
As usual, you can opt to change up the recipe for example; you might actually have garlic butter or want to use actual garlic gloves (crushed) in replacement of the garlic salt, any of these options is fine.
- Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius (mine is fan forced)
- While the oven is heating up, lightly grease a muffin tray (the larger type works best)
- Being extremely cautious slice the chicken breasts (horizontally) into 2 halves, then sliced those halves again giving you 8 slices in total. I definitely recommend a sharp knife and a steady hand for this job.
- As I don't have a mallet I used a potato masher to flatten each piece of breast, making sure they were all equal in thickness, this helps maintain each Mignon cooks evenly.
- Wrap each chicken breast with a piece of bacon and place standing upright into the muffin tray (see image below)
- Do this until all the chicken breasts have been rolled with bacon rashers, and are in the muffin tray
- Now for the garlic butter; I had about 25g of unsalted butter left over in the fridge so I zapped it in the microwave for 20 seconds and mixed it with half a teaspoon of garlic salt (you can add more or less depending on your preference). Mix the two well and allow to cool for a minute.
- Apply the garlic butter to the top of each Chicken Mignon, aiming to have an equal portion of the butter on each one.
- Cook for 35-45 minutes, depending on whether you want the bacon rashers crispy/ or what the thickness of your chicken breasts are.
I served my Chicken Mignon with some thick cut chips and they were loved by the family.
They are very simple to make, don't take much time or effort and honestly they are yummy!!
I see Chicken Mignon as something we would have once a month as the bacon and the butter aren't exactly a side salad to your diet but they are a nice meal to enjoy every now and then.
What do you think, will you give them a go? Do you have your own Chicken Mignon recipe that's different to this?
