Knead or flatten chicken breast to close to dinner plate size and marinate for 30 minutes to an hour in the refrigerator.  Assemble stuffing and set aside.  Once the breast is fully marinated, slide onto a sheet of tinfoil and lay flat.  Make sure the sheet is large enough to wrap the chicken breast in once it has been rolled.

Mix ingredients for stuffing mixture and clump in the middle of flattened chicken breast longways.  roll the chicken breast around the stuffing and tuck in the sides.  Flip it over so the sides of the chicken are facing on the foil.  Drizzle 2 T of marinade over the stuffed chicken, then wrap in foil.  Place foil wrapped chicken in a shallow baking pan with a 1/2" of water in it and bake at 450 degrees for 45 minutes.  Serve with Moussahapa sauce below.
