Weightwatchers Style Stuffed Chicken Wrapped in Streaky Bacon


I needed comfort food with this cold weather, so today i was going to have an array of vegetables such as turnips, sprouts and carrots.  So what to have with it?  Well this type of meal was a favourite of mine pre Weightwatchers, laden with everything. 

However its been a while since i had anything like this because i wasn't sure that id like it because of the Extra Light Philidelphia. 
I was just unsure whether it would taste curdy?

It wasn't, it wasn't creamy, it was moist, garlicy with sweat cherry tomatoes and topped with streaky bacon and roasted in the oven.  Heavenly!
