3. Place the chicken breasts on a cutting board. Use a large, flat spatula to press down on the top of the chicken breast and use your other hand to insert a knife into the thickest side of the chicken. Cut a pocket, being careful not to cut all the way through the other side and stopping before you get to the end of the chicken (creating a pocket, not a flap).

5. Divide the mixture to stuff half into each chicken pocket.

8. Place in the oven for 12-15 minutes until chicken has cooked through. If not using an oven-safe pan, simply transfer the chicken breasts to an oven-safe dish and bake. If your chicken breasts are quite large – they will need the full 15 minutes.
