Stuffed chicken recipes are a great way to step up your dinner game. While some people prefer strong flavors, like blue cheese, this recipe, which calls for milder goat cheese, is a favorite for everyone in the family. This recipe browns the chicken quickly in a pan to give it a nice, crispy coating, then finishing cooking in the oven.

Wait until the chicken is in the oven to prep your sides, like a quick salad or steamed veggie.

Stuffed chicken recipes look like a lot of work, but are deceptively easy. Break this one out when you have dinner guests over.

How to Make It

Preheat oven to 350°. Combine green onions, goat cheese, and bacon. Cut a 1-inch-wide slit into the thick end of chicken breast halves, and carefully cut down to center of chicken to form a pocket. Divide cheese mixture evenly among pockets. Secure with wooden picks. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Heat a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add canola oil. Add chicken to pan; sauté 4 minutes. Turn chicken over. Bake at 350° for 12 minutes; let stand 5 minutes.
