Cheese in a Chicken Pocket


  • 2 whole chicken breasts split and boned with skin left on
  • 1/2 cup diced mozzarella cheese
  • 1/3 cup bread crumbs, Italian or French bread
  • Ad
  • 5 Tbsp. butter
  • 4 tsp. diced cooked ham


Cut a pocket in each chicken piece and stuff with cheese. Tuck and shape each piece until you have a small loaf with skin on top. Wrap each piece individually in foil and steam for 20 minutes. Remove foil and discard skin from the chicken.

Toast bread crumbs in 2 Tbsp. melted butter until golden brown. Set aside. Heat ham in remaining butter. Dress chicken with bread crumbs and ham. Serve immediately. Serves 4.
