    Step 4:
    Preheat the grill to 400F - 450F and clean and oil the grates well.

    Once the grills reached this cooking range place the stuffed breasts on the grill and close the lid.

    After 6 or 7 minutes check the chicken and make sure it's browning up nicely underneath.

    If you need to loosen the chicken from the grates use a long pronged BBQ fork to slip between the grates under the breasts and carefully begin prying it up.

    Flip the chicken and continue cooking another 7 or 8 minutes or until fully cooked.

    Watch they don't burn.

    Once cooked, remove them from the grill and spoon or drizzle the reserved sauce over each piece.
