Apple-Stuffed Chicken

Servings 6 servings


  • 3/4 cup chopped apple
  • 3 tablespoons shredded low fat Cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Italian-style bread crumbs
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves 6-oz.
  • Wooden toothpicks
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine or use white grape juice with a splash of cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water divided
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped parsley


  • In a medium bowl, combine apple, cheese and bread crumbs; set aside.
  • Place chicken breast halves in a large zipper-topped plastic bag and pound to 1/4-inch
  • thickness (I use my rolling pin for this purpose). Spoon apple mixture evenly on chicken, roll up and secure with toothpicks.
  • In a large skillet with a tight-fitting lid, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add stuffed
  • chicken breast rolls and cook just until browned on the outside (you are not cooking them all
  • the way through). Add wine (or juice/vinegar) and 1/3 cup of the water; cover and simmer for
  • 15 to 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through; transfer to a serving platter.
  • Combine remaining water and cornstarch; stir into pan juices until thickened. Pour hot gravy
  • over chicken rolls and garnish with chopped parsley.
