Filled chicken breasts


This is not a difficult dish to make, and is worth every minute you put into it. The chicken is baked in the oven, then sliced and is nice and moist.

Sliced goes a long way!

Cool, then stir the mushroom mixture and herbs into the remaining butter, season to taste and set this aside.
Cut a long slit lengthways in the side of the chicken to create a pocket. Go as close to the edges as you can taking care not to slit the edge.
