recipe-cardrecipe-card

A sweet, salty, and tangy treat for tastebuds.

This chicken recipe covers all the bases that I look for in a recipe I love. It is a combination of sweet, tart, and salty. It uses lean chicken breasts and takes less than 45 minutes to complete. This stuffed chicken recipe is easy enough to make on a busy weeknight and filling enough to keep a family satisfied for hours. It is not low in carbs but you will love it anyway.

This recipe is a delicious meal that will surprise you how well chicken does with apples. The recipe is easy to make and your family will love it. I like to serve it with buttered green beans or asparagus. Future recipe? Maybe The calorie count is on the high side but it is delicious. I will never have to have cheddar on my apple pie but I love this recipe.
