    I was a little confused on how to stuff the Brie and bacon, so I put in tin foil and then put on breast. Mixed 2 T apple vinegar w/jelly v. The balsamic vinegar

      So sorry about the confusion! I can't believe I left out that step. It has been added now. You cut a pocket into each side of the chicken.
