Simple :)

I made this recipe in a grill pan & it turned out great! I used a zesty BBQ sauce & sub'd in smoked provolone cheese as it was what I had on hand. The hint of smoke in the cheese made the chicken taste like it came off the outdoor grill!

easy and quick on a weeknight but I must say I grow weary of the "health" police... if you don't like or approve of a recipe... just keep quiet... the rest of us will enjoy and share our positive thoughts.... just a nice way to step up a meal for our families!

This was delicious. I read the other comments first, so I decided to experiment . I bought some new thin, long metal skewers. I used 1 1/2 slice of cheese for each chicken breast; stuffed it in tight and then "sewed" the opening shut with the skewer. I cooked them on the grill, and only lost a tiny bit of cheese. Give it a try, the skewers came in a pack of 4 at Kroger for $2.99.
