My inspiration for this was a recipe for chicken breasts stuffed with sliced almonds and dried apricots. I made it my own way using the ingredients I already had- pecans and dried cherries.

How to Make Cherry Pecan Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
    Using a small sharp knife, cut a slit in each chicken breast to create a pocket about 4 inches long.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the stuffing ingredients. Stuff each breast with one quarter of the mixture. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. On a plate, combine the breadcrumbs and pecan chips. Dip each piece of chicken into the egg, then dredge in the breadcrumb mixture.
  4. Heat a little oil in a large nonstick oven-proof skillet over medium heat. Cook chicken on each side for 3-4 minutes.
    Transfer to the oven and bake for 16 to 20 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
