4 chicken breasts

1 green pepper, chopped
1 yellow pepper, chopped

3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

Cut a deep pocket into the side of each breast, set aside.
Rub the marinade well into the meat and set aside under cover for about 30 mins.
Saute onions and garlic till onions are transparent, add in peppers
and mushrooms till soft but still a little crisp.
Add in parsley and simmer for a couple of minutes.
Take the chicken breasts and place vegetable mixture and grated cheese
