It has almost been a year since I met up with Kim and the last time we did, we were at my house baking a Japanese cheesecake (which I have yet to master haha). This time, I went to her beautiful house with her cute little malteses (world’s most well behaved dogs) and cooked. It was quite funny because we were trying to figure out how to wrap the chicken and her mother so desperately wanted to help us but we refused her help no matter what. Eventually, we managed to roll it out nicely such that there was nice oozing cheese in the middle and crispy bacon on the outside.
The onion rings were a side dish that took forever to make because it was so tedious dipping each ring into flour then batter then breadcrumbs. The onions could have been more well-seasoned perhaps with stronger flavours like smoked paprika because tried spamming with Italian herbs but it was quite mild. The plus point of this recipe is that you get crispy onion rings without needing to fry it! That is so healthy, considering how much bacon you would have used for the chicken TEEHEE.

3. Place the chicken breast in the same direction.
4. Place the cheese on the chicken breast.
5. Roll the chicken over the cheese, from the sides to the middle.
