Baked Chicken with Herb Stuffing

These stuffed chicken breasts were a big hit with the family. The herb stuffing gave big taste to the chicken.

5 tsp butter, divided
1/2 c finely chopped onion
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 c bread crumbs
1 tbsp fresh parsley
1/4 tsp salt, divided
1/8 tsp dried marjoram
1/8 tsp dried thyme
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 tsp lemon juice
Black pepper

In a small skillet, heat 2 tsp butter. Add onion & garlic. Cook & stir until tender. Stir in bread crumbs, parsley, 1/8 tsp salt, marjoram & thyme. Remove from heat. Cut a pocket in the thickest part of each chicken breast. Fill with bread crumb mixture; secure with toothpicks. Sprinkle chicken with remaining salt. Place chicken breasts into a baking dish. In microwave melt remaining butter . Stir in lemon juice. Pour lemon butter mixture over chicken. Sprinkle with black pepper. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until juices run clear.
