2 cups sliced shiitake mushroom caps (about 1 [3.75-ounce] package)
2 tablespoons minced green onions
1 tablespoon grated peeled fresh ginger
3 tablespoons low-sodium teriyaki sauce, divided
4 (4-ounce) skinned, boned chicken breast halves

Cut a horizontal slit through the thickest portion of each chicken breast half to form a pocket. Stuff about 1 1/2 tablespoons of mushroom mixture into each pocket.

Heat 1 teaspoon oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; sauté 6 minutes on each side or until chicken is done. Remove chicken from skillet. Set aside; keep warm.

Add 2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce, orange rind, orange juice, sherry, and honey to skillet, and bring to a boil. Cook for 2 minutes or until reduced to 1/4 cup. Spoon orange glaze over chicken, and garnish with sliced green onions, if desired.
