  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a baking dish with cooking spray and sprinkle with 1 pinch thyme.
  2. Place chicken breasts between two sheets of heavy plastic (resealable freezer bags work well) on a solid, level surface. Firmly pound chicken with the smooth side of a meat mallet to a thickness of 1/4-inch.
  3. Spread apples and Cheddar cheese evenly over each chicken breast. Starting at one end, roll each breast around filling and secure the roll with a toothpick through the center. Transfer breasts to prepared baking dish. Drizzle olive oil over each breast and sprinkle with remaining thyme.
  4. Cook chicken breasts in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 25 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the meat should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

I used 20 ounces chicken and 3 medium-sized apples. I diced the chicken and cooked it in oil on the stove top. My mistake was to use 2 tbs olive oil. WAY too greasy. 1 tsp, as the recipe suggests, would have been better. Overall, the flavor was good.


EVAUGHN69, I think you should put your photo up with this recipe! I do think I would use this next time as a base for something a little different. I was thinking about sautéing lightly the apple with a little shallot and something to add some color to it. I did use my friend ~Lissa~'s Chai Tea Jelly to top my baked rollup for a little moisture. Also, mine did take a little longer than 25 minutes to bake---maybe 10-15 minutes more. I love the idea of this dish, and I'll use it again. Thanks!


Really good. My guest ate two whole chicken breasts! I used jazz apples and just cut them length wise and stuffed them in. I didn't use bacon like other people did and it was still really good.
