I made this for my family and they really liked it. Really easy to make. Only a couple changes....I omitted the olive oil from the goat cheese filling. It was smooth/creamy enough and I think adding the olive oil would have made it a little runny. Also, I had to cook the chicken for just under an hour...20-30 minutes wasn't enough to cook thicker chicken breasts all the way through.

I will definitely make this again!
