Cream Cheese Stuffed Lemon Pepper Chicken

I’ve been loving prosciutto and stuffing chicken with cheese lately. Like totally obsessed.

But this obsessions like any other will pass, I promise.

Just like my obsession with everything peanut butter and chocolate is starting to slowly fade.

Ok maybe not. I don’t think that will ever pass.

What can I say I love the simple things.

And I just love me some lemon pepper chicken.

Add some cheese to the mix and I’m pretty much in heaven! Deelish!

I actually cooked my chicken in the same baking sheet I made my roasted green beans in.

I’m all about not doing dishes, so this was a perfect one pan meal!

Just put everything in the oven and in 20mins Voila! dinner and side all ready!
