How to Stuff and Grill Chicken Breast:
1: Prepare your as directed. With your parallel to the cutting board, slice four 8-ounce chicken breasts in half horizontally without cutting all the way through; open like a book. Cover with plastic wrap and pound until 1/2 inch thick.
2: Season the chicken on both sides with salt and pepper, brush as directed, then spoon the lling on top, leaving a 1-inch border around the edges. Roll up the chicken toward the pointy end; tie with 3 pieces of kitchen twine. Brush again as directed.
3: Grill on oiled grates over medium heat, turning, until cooked through, 18 to 20 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest 5 minutes, then remove the twine and slice.
