Ingredients:  
1 (6 oz.) piece provolone - I like it with goat milk gouda cheese.
6 oz. fresh shiitake, stems discarded
1/4 cups chopped shallot (1 large)
1/2 tsp. dried thyme, crumbled
1 1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
3 tbsp. unsalted butter
4 chicken breast halves with skin and bones (2 1/2 to 3 lb total)

Directions:
Directions:
Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 500F. Line a shallow baking pan with foil or parchment paper.

Coarsely grate cheese and set aside in a medium bowl. Finely chop mushrooms and shallot or pulse in food processor - add thyme, 3/4 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp pepper to this mixture.

Heat 2 tbsp. butter in a 10-inch heavy skillet over moderately high heat until foam subsides, then saute mushroom mixture, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned about 5 minutes. Stir into cheese (some cheese will melt).

Pat chicken dry, then cut a deep 3 inch long pocket horizontally in long curved side of each chicken breast half and fill each pocket with one fourth of cheese mixture (some filling will be visible).

Put chicken in baking pan, then melt remaining tbsp. butter and brush over chicken. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 tsp. salt and remaining 1/4 tsp. pepper. Roast until cooked through and cheese is melted (filling will ooze), 20 to 25 minutes.

Can be creative and substitute other fillings.
When cutting the pockets for the stuffing, make them as large as possible on the inside without enlarging the 3 inch long incision on the outside.
