Cheesy Garlic Butter Mushroom Stuffed Chicken

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
Using a sharp knife, cut a pocket into each chicken breast, being careful not to cut all the way through.
Season the inside and outside of each chicken breast with salt and pepper.
In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat.
Add butter to the skillet and let it melt.
Add mushrooms to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until they are golden brown and tender, about 5-7 minutes.
Add minced garlic to the skillet and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, until fragrant.
Remove skillet from heat and let cool slightly.
In a bowl, mix together shredded mozzarella and grated Parmesan cheese.
Stuff each chicken breast with the mushroom mixture and cheese mixture.
Place stuffed chicken breasts in a baking dish and bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and cheese is melted and bubbly.
Garnish with chopped parsley before serving.
