Made as a bonus for Aus/NZ Swap #14. We spent a holiday in Normandy a few years ago, and camembert became one of our favorite French cheeses (of 365, as de Gaulle said !) I had nice thick chicken breasts, but became acutely aware that "pockets" were not my strong suite ! The outcome wasn't too pretty, but it was surely tasty ! Thanks, Sonya !
