Instructions Checklist
  • Cut a pocket in the side of each chicken breast. Season inside and out with salt and pepper. Blend chili sauce with onions and brush half inside each pocket.

  • Fill pockets with equal amounts of ham and cheese. Stitch pockets tightly closed using toothpicks. Preheat grill to medium high and grease lightly.

  • Stir butter with olive oil, cider vinegar, honey and thyme. Brush chicken all over with some of this mixture. Set the chicken on the grill and reduce the heat to medium. Grill the chicken, covered, for 8 to 10 minutes. Turn and brush with remaining glaze. Grill, covered, for 8 to 10 minutes longer or until cooked through.

Twists:

Twist 1: For an appetizing presentation, slice chicken breasts on an angle so that the filling shows; fan slices out over rice pilaf or mashed potatoes.

My family loved this! My three year old who is very picky just gobbled this one up. I also would add more cheese next time as it seemed to get lost in the other ingredients. Read More

Next time I would not use the Hientz chilli sauce. The flavour did not seem to go with the rest of the ingredients. Read More

This turned out really good. I skipped the chili sauce as I didn't have any. I doubled ( ) both the cheese and the ham as the chicken breasts I had were HUGE. I added the onions to the glaze and brushed that inside and out. I also brushed the glaze on a few times while cooking. The chicken turned out so nice and moist instead of dried out like it sometimes does on the grill. Will make this again for sure! Read More

Didn't use the BBQ but on the stove and followed the directions. Even used the left over pan juices on top of steamed green beans and even they were delicious! Read More

Really liked it!!! The only thing I would change would be to add a little bit more seasoning on the outside of the chicken! But otherwise super good! Read More
