hunters chicken is a regular in our house i make it by stuffing a chicken breast with cheese then wrapping in bacon, i always used to cook it with bbq sauce but we have since decided we like the sauce separate at the table. No recipe needed as it is really straight forward.

From the h2g2 website (which is part of the BBC):

But as long as you've got chicken breasts, bacon, cheese and barbecue sauce, it's hard to go wrong making Hunter's Chicken anyway!
I bought that Tescos Hunters Chicken for the first time recently and it WAS really tasty! I will try and make my own now too, thanks for recipe link Chris.
Barbecue sauce???....Not in any Hunters chicken I've seen,if by 'hunters' you mean Chicken Cacciatore.
Here's a god recipe...

Isn't Hunters chicken the same as Chicken chasseur? ( chasseur meaning chaser ) ?

Many thanks for your replies. I had never heard of Hunters chicken before. But as I said I got one from Tesco one day for quickness and it was beautiful. It was made with wine, because you could taste it. and it had black olives in it. Although I will not put those in. Also could taste smoked bacon and a bar b que sauce. I will try your recipes , both of them. thanks again. x
