1. Preheat oven to 180℃. Lay out chicken breast on a cutting board and gently hit with a meat mallet to flatten slightly. Set chicken aside.
2. Cut carrot and green beans into match sticks. Divid carrots and beans equally chicken breasts and place onto the left edge of each breast. From the left side, roll chicken over to wrap the carrot and beans tightly inside. Season with salt and pepper.
3. Lay out 2 bacon rashers next to each, with short end facing you. Place chicken wrap at the end closest to you and roll until to wrap chicken in bacon. Secure the bacon and chicken by inserting a few toothpicks through from top to bottom. Repeat with second chicken wrap and remaining bacon.
4. Drizzle a little coconut or olive oil in a large roasting pan then place chicken and bacon wrap onto pan. Top wraps with a tablespoonful each of mango chutney. Bake in oven for 40 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Serve with crunchy potato wedges.
