Using a sharp knife, cut a pocket in the thickest part of each chicken breast (the breastbone side).
It should becut intothe meat, parallel to the rib bones, not between the meat and bones, and should be large enough to hold 2 tablespoons of stuffing.
Fill each pocket with the stuffing and close the opening with a toothpick.
Arrange the breasts, skin side up, on a lightly greased broiler pan and sprinkle them with the salt and pepper.
