Directions

Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add 1/3 C shallots, Splenda, and garlic; cook 4 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring frequently. Spoon into a bowl; stir in 1 1/2 tsp vinegar.

Combine chopped tomatoes, shallot mixture, cheese, basil, and 1/4 tsp salt, stirring well.

Cut a horizontal slit through thickest portion of each chicken breast half to form a pocket. Stuff about 2 T cheese mixture into each pocket. Sprinkle chicken evenly with 1/2 tsp salt and black pepper.

Heat 1 tsp oil in pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 6 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken from pan; cover and keep warm.

    It was very good. I think next time I make it I will pound the chicken flat, spread the mixture, roll it up and bake for 30-45 min @ 350. I am not a big fan of cooking chicken in a pan with oil. Too messy! - 10/9/08

    I made this recipe this weekend and it was so simple. I really liked it for the most part, but I think I'd rather have something other than goat cheese. It was my first time trying goat cheese. But overall this was a really good dish!! - 3/10/09

    Very good. Not sure I like the taste of goat cheese tho, so maybe I'd try this again with another type of cheese. It was easy to make, and seemed very "gourmet!" - 9/13/08

  • Instead of turning the stuffed breast, I added the broth, placed a cover on the pan and steamed the meat for about 6 minutes. This way, I avoided a mess and spillage from turning. - 7/10/13
