Goat Cheese-Stuffed Chicken with Apricot Glaze Recipe

“My original version of this recipe used several tablespoons of butter versus the one tablespoon of olive oil. It also used dried apricots and honey and more of the cheese.” David Dahlman - Chatsworth, California

"Yummy!! The most common problem of filling leaking during cooking is not pounding the meat thin enough. If it's too thick, it makes for a longer cooking time."

"I give 2 stars for flavor only. The filling oozed out while browning and made a mess. The lemon juice curdled the sauce (but didn't hurt the flavor) and when cut to serve the rest of the filling came out. Deleted from my file--sorry!"

"quick and delicious. The shallots were a bit lumpy for the recipe so I put it in the Vitamixer for a smoother sauce. Husband loved it!"

"I made this last night and it turned out perfect. I don't like using toothpicks (they never come out easily) so I tie my roll-ups with cotton kitchen twine & while they are resting (at least 15mins) I just clip the ties off, slice and serve."

"Not sure if I didn't get the chicken pounded thin enough, but mine totally came apart and cheese went everywhere in the pan."
