Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breasts skinless & boneless
  • 2 cups dill pickle brine See notes
  • 8 slices provolone cheese
  • 2/3 cup dill pickle relish
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Instructions

Optional Brining Stage:

  • Allow the the chicken breasts to sit in the dill pickle brine for 30 minutes. Remove and dry the breasts off.

To Make the Chicken:

  • Pre-heat the oven to 400ºF/200ºC
  • Place the chicken breasts on a cutting board. Take a sharp knife and keeping it parallel to the chopping board cut through the middle of the chicken leaving the back edge intact. (See full pictures in post).
  • Gently open up the chicken breasts.
  • Place 2 tablespoons of the dill pickle relish inside each chicken breast and spread it out to create a thin layer.
  • Fold 2 slices of provolone into each chicken breast, then sprinkle with parmesan.
  • Close each chicken breast up and season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
  • Pour the oil into a cast iron fry pan and fry the chicken smooth side down for 4 minutes. Carefully flip the chicken and finish baking the chicken in oven for 8-10 minutes.

Notes

The brining step is optional, but it does make so much difference. 
If you don't have any pickle juice use 2 cups of water mixed with 1/8 cup of salt and 2 tbsp of white sugar.
