Made this for Spring PAC 2014 and this was delicious. I did add some minced garlic and a little more goat cheese than stated. I also used an egg to dip my chicken in and seasoned panko crumbs topped with paprika and olive oil. Definately a keeper. Thank you for posting.

This recipe was delicious and will find its way into our regular rotation. The only changes I made were to leave out the bacon and use panko bread crumbs. I saut?ed everything in a cast iron skillet and then roasted the chicken breast in the oven in the same skillet. Next time, I would saut? the top of the panko-covered stuffed breast before putting it in the oven.
