  1. Fabuous recipe with a wonderful combination of flavors! I swear you could put just about anything rolled up inside a chicken breast and it's bound to be good. The combination of sweet apple and sharp cheddar was definitely an indicator that this was going to be tasty so I had to give this a try - Read more ...
  2. This is a wonderful recipe! The combination of flavors and textures are so complimentary and its even easy to make. I made it for my in-laws tonight and it got rave reviews from all six of us. I made a few alterations: I added 2 tbl. chopped walnuts 2 tbl. chopped parsley and 1 tbl. - Read more ...
  3. A nice little elegant meal. The other reviewers are right make sure to brown your chicken well and there will be no issues with weird purple chicken and it will taste better. Choose tart apples that will hold their shape like a granny smith. Butterfly and pound your chicken to allow more surface area for - Read more ...
  4. It's a good base recipe, but after reading the reviews, I knew it needed kicking up a notch. So I did the following: For the stuffing, I used red delicious apples, about 3/4 C, 3 T crumbs, and 1/4 C sharp cheddar, shredded. It smelled bland. So I added about 3-4 T brown sugar, and - Read more ...

I needed something a little different for chicken breasts last night and I had a couple of apples left over from a pie and instead of cheddar I used brie since that is what I had in the fridge. I rarely measure ingredients and I know I used more apple cheese. More wine and - Read more ...
  7. OUTSTANDING recipe! I made it a second time with slight variations. Added to stuffing about 2 T. shredded carrot for color and about 2 T. chopped pecans for texture. I also couldn't watch it on the stove so after browning the breasts I removed them and deglazed the pan with the wine and then added - Read more ...
  8. The chicken was very tender but there wasn't much taste. Next time I will use chicken broth instead of water and maybe add some more spices or brown sugar. It did look impressive on the serving platter.
  9. Came out very tender and seemed more difficult than it was! The only tricky part is the physical stuffing of the chicken we found that pinning each piece with the same number of toothpicks whether it needs it or not ensures you know how many you are taking out before serving!
