Directions

Certainly! Here's a recipe for Honey Dijon Stuffed Cheesy Chicken:

**Ingredients:**

For the Chicken:

- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

- Salt and pepper to taste

- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

- 2 tablespoons olive oil

For the Honey Dijon Sauce:

- 1/4 cup Dijon mustard

- 2 tablespoons honey

- 2 tablespoons mayonnaise

- 1 teaspoon minced garlic

- 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme (or fresh if available)

- Salt and pepper to taste

**Instructions:**

1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

2. Start by preparing the chicken breasts. Place each chicken breast between two sheets of plastic wrap or parchment paper. Use a meat mallet or rolling pin to gently pound the chicken to an even thickness, about 1/2 inch thick. Season both sides of the chicken with salt and pepper.

3. In a small bowl, mix together the shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheese.

4. Sprinkle a generous amount of the cheese mixture over each chicken breast, leaving a small border around the edges.

5. Carefully roll up each chicken breast, tucking in the sides as you go, to create a neat roll. Secure the rolls with toothpicks.

6. Heat olive oil in an oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the stuffed chicken breasts to the skillet and sear them until they are golden brown on all sides, about 2-3 minutes per side.

7. While the chicken is searing, prepare the Honey Dijon Sauce. In a small bowl, whisk together the Dijon mustard, honey, mayonnaise, minced garlic, dried thyme, salt, and pepper.

8. Pour the Honey Dijon Sauce over the seared chicken breasts in the skillet.

9. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C) and the cheese is melted and bubbly.

10. Carefully remove the toothpicks from the chicken before serving.

11. Serve your Honey Dijon Stuffed Cheesy Chicken hot, garnished with additional fresh thyme or parsley if desired.
