One. Two. Three Ingredient Stuffed Chicken

Today I worked from home so I was able to cook dinner. Cooking a dinner from scratch is not something that I can't do after an hour commute home. Sorry but I am usually wiped out from the crazy commute. Today I found this recipe on 3-Ingredient Chicken Breasts Stuffed With Ham and Cheese. Amazing! So simple and actually relaxing to put together. Of course, a vodka and orange juice helped with the relaxation factor. But seriously. I finished work at 5:30 pm. Dinner was on the table by 6:30. Not bad considering that I also roasted Acorn Squash. Yeah!

3-Ingredient Chicken Breasts Stuffed With Ham and Cheese for 2-

2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 1 pounds)
Freshly ground black pepper
2 ounces thinly sliced ham
2 ounces thinly sliced Gruyère cheese
1/2 tablespoon olive oil Kosher salt

Preheat oven to 400°F. Using a sharp knife, make an incision on the thinner long side of chicken breast, cutting parallel through the breast but not all the way through.

Season inside of chicken with pepper and stuff each with 1 oz. ham and 1 oz. cheese.

Transfer chicken to a rimmed baking sheet and rub all over with oil; season lightly with salt and pepper.

Roast chicken until an instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part of breast registers 165°F, 12–15 minutes.

Let cool slightly before slicing
