Blue-Pineapple Stuffed Chicken

Hello!

Today’s main dish was pretty excellent, if a bit different from what I usually do. And it’s also probably a bit more expensive than you’d normally want. But I am surprised by how much I liked it.

I made a Blue cheese & Pineapple Stuffed Chicken Breast for dinner.

Ingredients

I made a single (boneless, skinless) breast worth. You can (probably) adapt this fairly easily.

  1. A boneless, skinless chicken breast. I used a fairly large one.
  2. About 1/4 cup Pineapple. (I used canned.)
  3. About 1/8 cup blue cheese crumbles. (I did not measure this.)
  4. About 1/8 cup bread crumbs, plus more for sprinkling.
  5. Herbs & spices. (I used parsley, basil, paprika, and salt.)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to about 400 F.
  2. Line an appropriately sized baking dish with aluminum foil to minimize cleanup. Put a touch of oil and some seasonings onto the bottom. (Optional.)
  3. Slice the chicken (not all the way through) so that you can stuff it. (You want to have a cavity you can fill.)
  4. Mix together pineapple, blue cheese, herbs and spices, and bread crumbs in a small bowl. The consistency should not be too liquidy. If it is, add more bread crumbs. Or blue cheese. Or both. 🙂
  5. Stuff the stuffing into the chicken. (You may want to put the chicken in the baking dish before stuffing. Up to you.)
  6. Sprinkle the chicken with herbs and more breadcrumbs. (This gives the chicken a bit of extra flavor and crunch.)
  7. Bake until chicken is thoroughly cooked.
  8. Take a picture.  (Optional.)
