Feta Stuffed Chicken Breast

We had this the other night. It was excellent. I’m a big fan of stuffed anything but this topped the charts for stuffed chicken breast. And face it, we are all looking for a new way to make chicken.

4 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
1/2 cup feta cheese
1/2 cup white cheddar cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons fresh basil, minced
fresh ground pepper

Preheat oven to 350. Cut open the side of the chicken breast and make a pocket in the chicken. Combine the feta, white cheddar, basil and some fresh ground black pepper. Stuff into the pocket that you made in the chicken breast. Heat a little oil in an oven safe skillet and brown one side of the chicken. Flip chicken over when brown and move skillet into hot oven for about 20 minutes. Check chicken for doneness but don’t let it get over cooked. Once chicken is cooked let rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
