  1. Heat oven to 375 F. Slice chicken horizontally, leaving one side attached. Open chicken piece, place plastic wrap over it and flatten with the palm of your hand or a cast iron pan. Discard plastic wrap. Season chicken with salt and pepper
  2. Place half of your grated apple and cheese in the middle of half a chicken piece. Fold over chicken to cover filling and secure with toothpicks. Repeat with second piece of chicken
  3. In an ovenproof skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat until it shimmers. Add chicken and cook until browned, turning once, about 3 minutes total
  4. Using a paper towel clasped in a pair of tongs, wipe any excess oil from the skillet and place skillet in oven. Roast until chicken is cooked through, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove toothpicks

Any cheese that melts easily may be used. We recommend trying Gouda, mozzarella or Brie.
