1 pkg. PERDUE® PERFECT PORTIONS® Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts, Italian Style (1.5 lbs.)
1 1/4 cups herbed stuffing mix
2/3 cup hot water
1/2 cup green olive tapenade
2 tablespoons olive oil
5 1/2-inch slices fresh mozzarella cheese

Step 1: 
In a bowl, mix herbed stuffing mix with hot water until softened. Stir in tapenade; mix well.
Step 2: 
Place 1/4 cup stuffing on one half of each chicken breast and fold from top to bottom to encase and secure with a toothpick.
Step 3: 
Heat oil in heat-resistant, non-stick skillet over medium-high heat; place stuffed breasts in skillet and brown slightly on each side, 3-4 minutes per side. Remove from heat and place in a preheated 375°F oven for 4-5 minutes.
Step 4: 
Top each “pillow” with a slice of mozzarella cheese and continue cooking 3-4 minutes or until chicken is cooked through, stuffing is heated and cheese is melted. Remove from heat and place on hot dish. Cover and set aside.
Step 5: 
Heat hot skillet from oven on medium-high heat and add Balsamic vinegar and let reduce by half. Serve each chicken “pillow” drizzled with 1 tablespoon Balsamic reduction.
