Directions

Prep: 30 minutes, Cook: 45 to 50 minutes, Serves: 4

1. To prepare stuffed chicken breasts, boil stock in a medium saucepan until reduced to 2 cups; set aside.

2. Preheat oven to 375°F and spray a 13-by-9-inch shallow casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray.

3. Melt 3 tbsp. butter in a medium skillet. Add apple, celery and onion; sauté for 10 minutes to soften.

4. Stir together 1 cup reduced stock and cider; drizzle over bread cubes. Add cooked produce, 1 tbsp. syrup and 1 tbsp. herbs; toss lightly to mix.

5. Meanwhile, cover chicken breasts with plastic wrap and pound with a meat mallet until 1/4-inch thick. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

6. Spread about 1/2 cup stuffing mixture onto each chicken breast and roll up tightly; secure with kitchen string.

7. Brown chicken on both sides in remaining 1 tbsp. butter; place in prepared dish and surround with stuffing. Top with remaining 1 tbsp. syrup and 1 tbsp. herbs. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until chicken reaches 165°F on a meat thermometer.

8. While chicken is cooking, make Cider Gravy. Melt butter in a medium saucepan and cook until lightly browned. Stir in flour and cook for 1 minute.

9. Whisk in reduced stock and cider. Simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. Stir in herbs and season to taste with salt and pepper.
