Apple Stuffed Chicken Breasts
Ingredients:
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, 1⁄2 tsp salt, 1⁄4 tsp black pepper, 12 very thin peeled apple slices, 1⁄4 cup shredded cheddar cheese, 1 tbsp canola oil, 1⁄2 cup apple cider
Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350°. Cut a slit about 2 inches long in thick side of each chicken breast to form a pocket (do not cut in half). Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Stuff each with 3 apple slices and 1 TBSP cheese. Pinch edges to seal.
2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook for 2 minutes on each side. Bake for 17-20 minutes, turning once.
3. In a saucepan, pour pan drippings through a fine wire-mesh strainer; discard solids. Stir in cider, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir often, for 2 minutes. Serve apple cider mixture with chicken. less
