Chicken with Applesauce
While jarred applesauce is perfectly acceptable for this recipe, making your own isn't much trouble either. Try serving this chicken with the Applesauce recipe on page 15. The chicken will also go well with the Peach Sauce recipe on page 16 or the Pear Sauce on page 18. Just about any sweet fruit sauce will go nicely with stuffed chicken.
Wash the chicken breast and remove any skin or fat. Cut a long diagonal slit across the widest part of the breast and push the cheese inside.
Dip the chicken breast into flour, coating all sides. Shake gently to remove any excess.
Heat the oil in a skillet. Slide the chicken breast into the hot oil and cook for 3–4 minutes, or until the first side is browned. Flip the breast and cook another 3–4 minutes. Continue cooking until the breast is completely cooked.
Heat the oven to 350°F. Place the cooked chicken onto a greased cookie sheet. Pour applesauce on top and bake for 15–20 minutes, or until the applesauce is heated through.
Allow to cool, cut into small pieces, and serve. You can also fork-mash if desired.
