“Apples and Cheese pocketed inside moist chicken are perfectly complimented by a very rich egg-based sweet creme sauce. This recipe is elegant but uses simple ingredients, and easy on the pocketbook!”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly oil a baking pan.
  2. Using a sharp knife, carefully cut a large pocket in each chicken breast. (Hint: Cutting close to the smooth side of the breast ensures no holes in the chicken.) Place 1 half-slice of provolone inside each chicken, followed by half of the apple slices, and a small amount of shallot or onion, to suit your tastes. Top with the remaining half slice of provolone. Pull the chicken back together, sprinkle with a small amount of milk, and coat with breadcrumbs. Place stuffed breasts on baking pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until no longer pink, and juices run clear.
  4. While the chicken bakes, you may start your sauce. In a double boiler over lightly simmering water, combine the egg yolks and sugar. Beat until the yolk lightens and froth forms. Slowly add the wine, stirring constantly, until the sauce thickens. Remove from the heat and stir in the pecans and vanilla. The sauce looks nice served under the chicken with a small amount drizzled over it.

As a novice gourmet, I was a bit weary of this recipe because it called for a "double boiler", but I fashioned a makeshift one from a stainless steel bowl over a pot of about 1" of simmering water and this meal came out like I had been cooking for years! I'm proud to be the first to review this unique recipe! Thank you elfindancer!

I wish I could have rated this higher. The recipe *sounded* yummy, and it was easy to put together. There were a lot of different flavors, but it still needed - something. I think that substituting gorgonzola for the provolone would have made this a winner...it needs a stronger cheese to balance out the sweetness of the sauce. I'd give it another chance, though.

Good, but too sweet as written. Next time will cut back on the sugar.
