Chicken Breast Stuffed With Golden Onions & Fontina

“The pungent nutty taste of fontina cheese, combined with its gooey texture when heated, makes it a sumptuous partner to the sweet cooked onions in the stuffing. While this chicken dish is easy for a weeknight, the sauce makes it special enough to serve guests at a casual dinner party.”
