Directions:
Stuffing chicken breasts and grilling them over a smoky fire or in the oven.

For the stuffing, herb purees made with garlic and olive oil binding with creamy and strong-flavored cheese like Fontana, pepper Jack, or feta combined with 3 tablespoons of bread crumbs (or crushed corn chips).
To stuff, slice a pocket into the thickest part of the breast. Spoon the filling into the pocket and seal the breast back up with toothpick.
Because of the added bulk from the stuffing, these chicken breasts spend extra time on the grill and can become dry on the exterior—gently grilling the chicken with indirect heat works better.
A 30-minute soak in oil, lemon juice, and garlic will give the chicken the protection it needs against drying out on the grill, plus an extra boost of flavor to complement the stuffing.
