Baked chicken breast recipes

You can fry a chicken, but what about simple baked chicken breast recipes? Being on a bit of a health kick, I really wanted to try and develop some baked chicken breast recipes. One idea was a stuffed chicken breast.

 

Stuffed chicken breast

I did not want to do a traditional stuffed chicken breast with cheese. I wanted to do something different with a chicken stuffing recipe. The idea of doing apple stuffing appealed to me. Using boneless chicken, I could make a great stuffed chicken breast!

Apple stuffing

Most apple stuffings are made with rice. However, I wanted to make my apple stuffing with bread stuffing. I felt the bread and apple would make for a great combination. Plus apple and chicken go well together, so making an apple stuffing for this baked chicken breast recipe would give this chicken a great savory taste.

 

Savory apple recipe

 When you think of Apple, you think of a sweet recipe. A savory apple recipe may not be your first thought. I like to think outside the box, mixing sweet and savory together in this boneless chicken was a recipe development I really liked doing.

Stuffing for pork

Pork is another white meat that is great with apples. So this apple stuffing can also be made with a boneless pork chop. No matter what meat you use, this apple recipe will be the hit of the dinner table.
