Preheat your oven to 375. Season you chicken with above seasoning. Pour marinade over chicken and mix. Also add in garlic and lemon zest. Marinate the chicken for 30 minutes to an hour.
With a knife cut the chicken along the Vertical aspect (as seen below). making sure not to cut completely through, making a pocket.

(optional ) Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top of the chicken.
Now there are 2 ways to cook the chicken. The first way is searing the chicken in a pan. Heat up some olive oil in a pan place chicken in, Sear for 1-2 minutes each side. When done place into the oven. Continue to bake for 20-25 minutes until chicken is done.
