Ingredients:  
3 medium chicken breasts, boneless and skinless

olive oil

Your choice of stuffing -- 1 slice of cheese, about c. of chopped vegetable, about c. of flavorful condiment

cheddar, broccoli, chopped ham
fontina, spinach, mushrooms

The choices are endless; just use your imagination and pick the things you like.

Directions:
Put breasts on a cutting board and cut a pocket into the fat part being careful not to cut all the way through. You can use your fingers to widen the opening a bit. Rub the breast, inside and out, with the olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Stuff with cheese, veggie, and condiment; then seal with toothpicks.

Preheat oven to 350. Heat an ovenproof skillet (I prefer cast iron), add a tablespoon or two of olive oil and sear each breast on each side for about 2 minutes until golden brown. Move the skillet to the oven and bake for about 20 minutes until cooked through. Remove chicken to a plate and allow to rest for a few minutes. If you like you can add about half a cup of chicken broth and 2 T. butter or cream to the skillet and bring to a boil to reduce and thicken. Then cut breasts in half on a diagonal, remove the toothpicks, pour skillet drippings over chicken and serve.

Personal Notes:
Most breasts these days are large enough to serve two people. If you think your guests have larger appetites than that just increase everything correspondingly.
