How To Cook Stuffed Chicken Breast

The combination of the sweet and savory is an excellent flavor profile. The apples and raisins provide a fresh take on a standard dish, creating excitement at dinner time. While stuffed chicken breasts may sound difficult, this dish is easy to make despite its fancy appearance and will certainly please even the pickiest of eaters that you have at home. To prepare the stuffing, combine oil, chopped apple and raisins in a hot skillet until the mixture is soft. Butterfly the chicken breast and pound it until it is about 1/8 inch thick. Season the chicken breast with salt and pepper before filling the butterflied breast with the stuffing. Roll the breast to enclose the stuffing and tie the breast shut with butcher twine. Cook the chicken in a frying pan until it is golden brown and finish in the oven. Remove the twine, slice and serve! In this video, Chef Fernando provides an online cooking lesson for making stuffed chicken breast. For more great cooking demonstration videos, subscribe to the LearnToCookOnline YouTube channel.
