Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon each dried oregano, thyme, and basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 slices Cache Valley Sliced Provolone Cheese
  • 1/2 cup Cache Valley Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1/2 cup Cache Valley Shredded Six Cheese Italian Cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Use a sharp knife to cut a pocket horizontally in the thickest side of each chicken breast, being sure not to cut all the way through. 
  • Place one slice of provolone cheese in the pocket, topped with 1/4 of the mozzarella, and 1/4 of the six cheese Italian. Use toothpicks to close and secure the opening. 
  • Drizzle chicken breasts with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, oregano, thyme, basil, and garlic powder and use your fingertips to rub seasonings into the chicken. 
  • In a large oven-safe skillet (see note) over medium-high heat, melt butter. Once almost melted, add the honey and stir until mixture bubbles. Add chicken and brown on each side for 2-4 minutes. Whisk together the balsamic vinegar and brown sugar, pour over chicken and cook 2 minutes longer. 
  • Transfer pan/skillet to oven and bake for about 15-20 minutes until chicken is cooked through and cheeses are melted. Spoon balsamic sauce from the pan over the chicken, top with fresh basil if desired, and serve.
