I made this last night, Lucky, and it was absolutely DELICIOUS!

I had one giant 1.23 lb. chicken breast which I sliced horizontally into 3 flat pieces.

Homecook posted a very similar recipe; the key difference was that she used kalamata olives. I love them, so I chopped up a few to add to the cheese filling and tossed some in the pan to simmer with the other stuff.

FANTASTIC!

Thanks for the recipe - I will definitely make this again!

Served with baba ganoush, pita and a very light Greek wine.
