skinless boneless chicken breasts

Kosher salt

Freshly cracked black pepper

6 oz.

2

cloves garlic, minced

4

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 400º. Make 5 slits in each breast, being careful not to cut through completely. Transfer to a small baking sheet and season all over with salt and pepper.

  2. In a medium bowl, stir together cream cheese, mozzarella, cheddar, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper.
