Are you guys big boursin lovers? MY NAME IS BECKY AND I’M A HUGE BOURSIN LOVER! If you don’t know what it is, it’s a creamy herbed cheese that is just begging to be stuffed inside chicken and wrapped in pancetta. It’s SO delicious and an under-valued cheese in my opinion.

When you bake these Cheesy Pancetta Wrapped Chicken Rollups some of the boursin leaks out and creates the most delicious, bubbly, buttery, sauce around the chicken. You can spoon it over the chicken, over your side of pasta, rice, or veggies, or sip it with a spoon (don’t do that). It’s SO YUM. Just looking at these pictures is making me remember how much I love this recipe. It was one of the first meals my Mom brought us after Henry was born and I can still taste it.
I know you see that boursin cheese oozing out. Perfection! Easy chicken meal for the WIN! Chicken, cheese, pancetta (basically bacon, so how can you not love it)…what more do you need? This meal has it all and just needs you to make it. Which…is pretty easy. Let’s be honest. Tonight is the night!!
