Cheese Stuffed Chicken


Cut 2 in pocket in the thickest part of 4 6oz boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Stuff each pocket with 4 oz of cheese (we used bacon cheddar and it was great!), season with 1/2 t salt and 1/4 t black pepper. Cook the chicken in 1 T of olive oil in a large skillet over med-high heat until golden brown and cooked through. Place top on the skillet and a cheese sauce will form.
