The Steps 

Chicken or pork fillets are marinated in an olive oil, garlic, thyme, and wholegrain mustard marinade for 2 to 6 hours. The longer you marinate the fillets, the more your flavors will develop, and the juicier the fillets will become too! The chicken or pork fillets are wrapped in streaky bacon and cooked in the oven, until the bacon is crispy, and the fillets are cooked through. The fillets should cook in the oven for about 35 minutes, depending on their size. Smaller fillets will need less time in the oven. If you are wanting to lessen the calories in this dish, opt for turkey bacon.

A Well-Balanced Meal 

This dish is served with braised cabbage, roast baby potatoes, and blanched broccoli. The cabbage is braised in a red wine, balsamic vinegar, sugar, and butter glaze, that is spiced with cinnamon and star anise. This adds a warmth and distinct flavor to the cabbage, that takes on the flavor so well. Both the cabbage and the broccoli contribute greatly to the overall nutritional value of this dish, as they are packed with vitamins and minerals such as vitamin K, vitamin C, folate, and manganese.  

Serve this flavorful meal as a weeknight dish, or for a dinner party with friends and family. Either way, anyone who indulges in this meal will be delighted by its distinct flavors and guaranteed tastiness.
