Take chicken breasts and butterfly each one to create a little pocket. Squirt honey on both sides of breasts and rub into meat. In a bowl add Panko. Take chicken and dip into Panko, coating both sides. Set aside.
In separate bowl add blue cheese, walnuts and honey together. Mix together with your hands making sure honey is completely coating cheese and walnuts. Split cheese mixture into six equal parts (about 2 oz) and stuffing to each chicken breast. In a 12 inch heated and oiled skillet, brown each breast for 1 and a half minutes on each side and then put into oven. Cook for 25-30 minutes.
Remove chicken from pan and let rest. Add butter and flour to pan and mix in. When flour is browned, add wine to deglaze and thicken. When done pour over chicken and serve.
