Chicken stuffed with Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Olives, and Mozzarella

I love, love, love quick meals that look fancy. This chicken dish is just that. Look at that chicken... it is stuffed full of olives, sun dried tomatoes, and mozzarella cheese. It looks amazing and tastes amazing! The best part of it, though? Ridiculously quick and easy. Add this to your menu and make it soon... you won't be disappointed!!!

Chicken stuffed with Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Olives, and Mozzarella
Recipe from Elly Says Opa

2 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
6-8 kalamata olives, pitted and chopped
3 Tbsp. sundried tomatoes, sliced
2 slices mozzarella or provolone cheese
1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp. thyme
salt and pepper
2 tsp. olive oil
2 Tbsp. chicken broth
2 Tbsp. white wine

Preheat the oven to 350.

Cut a pocket into your chicken breasts and fill each one with the sundried tomatoes, kalamata olives, and a slice of mozzarella cheese.

Mix together the flour with salt and pepper and the thyme. Lightly dredge the chicken breasts in the flour mixture.

Heat an oven-proof skillet over medium heat and add the oil. Once smoking, add the chicken breasts and sear, about 2 minutes per side. Place the pan in the oven until chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes.

Remove the chicken from the skillet and place the pan on the stovetop over medium heat. Add the chicken broth and wine, scraping up the browned bits and reducing the liquid by half. Spoon the sauce over the chicken breasts.
