Stuffed Chicken Breasts w/Wild Rice and Raisins



Even the most ardent lover of chicken breasts will eventually get bored with them.  



Here enters the cure for the chicken breast blues!

If you’ve never stuffed chicken breasts, it’s much easier than you imagine.  The options are unlimited, and this is my easy version:

A few bread cubes, a little wild rice, raisins and seasonings… 

Lay the chicken flat on your cutting board and on the top side, place the knife half way between the top and the bottom and slice a pocket into the chicken breast; laterally without cutting through and open pocket.  There's no need to secure with toothpicks when stuffed, it will lay flat.

Fill with stuffing, bake and Voila! 

Easy, peasy and delicious, no more chicken breast blues!

  4. I like the way you write even more than the stuffed chicken breasts. However, they sound and look so enticing that I'll have to try and prepare them.
