Goat Cheese, Sweet Onion, Apple and Brandy Stuffed Chicken

I love making different variations of stuffed chicken. This one was so yummy that I just had to share it with all of you. We have an interesting few weeks in Wisconsin, (as I am sure you all heard) I am hoping that our Governor learns to compromise and support the working class. I fully understand the need to balance a budget, but linking salaries and health coverage to a person's right to bargain for their work conditions and benefits it not the answer. Anyways, that is all I have on that (for now), enjoy the chicken!
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
3 oz goat cheese
1 medium apple, chopped
1 sweet onion, sliced
1/3 cup brandy
1 Tbl olive oil
1 Tbl butter
1 Tbl sugar
Black pepper

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

Add butter, oil, sugar, apples, onion and brandy to a large skillet. Allow mixture to simmer till liquid is absorbed, and onions are tender. Set aside.

Place chicken breasts into separate plastic bags and pound with a meat mallet till chicken is about 1/4 inch thick. Spread one quarter of the goat cheese on chicken and place 1/4 cup of apple mixture in the center of the chicken. Fold in the sides of the chicken and secure with toothpicks. Place chicken in baking dish and repeat with 3 remaining chicken breasts. Be sure to reserve 1/2 cup of the apple mixture. Season chicken with black pepper. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Top with remaining apple mixture.
