How to stuff chicken breast

Here's how to make the pocket for the chicken breast stuffing.
Hold the chicken steady with one hand. Slice through the thickest part with a sharp knife.
Cut a slit about 5 cm (about 2 in) long. Cut through the breast three-quarters of the way using the knife.
Add stuffing. Using a bamboo skewer, enclose the filling so it won't fall out.
