Goat Cheese and Parsley Stuffed Chicken Breasts

I got this idea from reading Cooking Light magazine, my favorite!  I changed the recipe just a bit to make it easier for me and more to our liking.  It was even easier than I expected.

Goat Cheese and Parsley Stuffed Chicken Breasts
1/3 c. panko breadcrumbs
2-3 Tbl. chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
4 oz. goat cheese
4 bonless, skinless chicken breasts
1 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
2 tsp. olive oil
Heat oven to broil.  Combine first three ingredients.  Cut a horizontal slit through side of each chicken breasts. (start a thickest end)  Stuff each breast with 2 Tbl. of cheese and parsley mixture.  Close chicken breast.  Hold together with toothpick if needed.  Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.  Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  Add olive oil, heat.  Add chicken cook each piece for about 2 minutes or until browned (only on one side)  Place chicken breasts on baking sheet with browned side up.  Broil until done.
These chicken breasts look great sliced.  The center is the focal point so slice each breast evenly and arrange alongside some vegetables and couscous.
