Jalapeno and Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Stuffing chicken is a time-honored way to infuse flavor into something that can quickly become routine. The key is to properly butterfly the chicken and pound it flat with a meat tenderizer, then roll the chicken around the stuffing. Here we used creamy goat cheese, roasted jalapeno peppers, apple and some seasonings for a highly flavorful combination.
