This is definitely a cheese lover heaven and a dieter’s nightmare, this Cream Cheese Stuffed Chicken and Butterbean Mushroom Puree.

But when it comes to the end of the week and before cleanout Friday of my fridge I gather all bits and bobs in the fridge.
And cleared another what to with chicken breasts dilemma.
It’s always feta and spinach or cordon bleu.
Anyway, I made a Cream Cheese Stuffed Chicken with a Blue Cheese and Bacon Sauce.
I served it on a Butter Bean and Mushroom Puree (which got funny looks because it was not aesthetically pleasing – but enjoyed) anyway.
