Sweet from the onions, creamy and rich tasting, these chicken breasts are truly buttery and delicious. Treat your family or onion loving friends to this special dish. You can make up the filling the day before and refrigerate until just before stuffing the chicken.

This chicken dish was excellent, we totally loved it last night. After reading the other 2 reviews I closed the pocket opening with toothpicks while cooking the chicken and the filling stayed in, worked fine. Loved the brie with the flavor from the wine, great dish:) Thanks for sharing, will definitely make this again! Made for ZWT3.
This was very tasty. I also had a problem with keeping the onion mixture from falling out while cooking the chicken. Next time I think that I will do the onions separately and just serve them over the chicken. Nice dish. Thanks Geema.
I was only going to give this 4 stars because the filling totally came out while sauteeing the chicken breast. So I improvised and kept the chicken in the pan and added fresh sage and white wine. I did not add more onion, garlice or the chicken broth. The caramelized onions I used were actually caramelized leeks from another recipe. So - when I put the chicken and wine, chesse, leek sauce over rice - it was heavenly. Great combination of flavors. I don't think that leaving out the broth, and extra onions and garlic detracted from the dish in any way. I will make this again!
