How to Make Pistachio/Apple Chicken w/ Mushroom sauce

Step-by-Step

  • 1Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Saute shallots in butter and set aside.
  • 2Place chicken breasts between 2 sheets of wax paper and pound until slightly flattened.
  • 3Combine cream cheese,pistachio nuts, nutmeg, sauteed shallots and diced apple.
  • 4Divide mixture evenly between chicken breasts. Roll, folding envelope style, and place in a lightly greased baking dish. (I use toothpicks to secure that the stuffing doesnt fall out)
  • 5Lightly dust tops of chicken breasts with flour, salt and pepper.
  • 6Add chicken broth and apple cider to baking dish.
    Bake for 30-35 minutes or until done, in 350 degree oven.Remove chicken from baking dish and keep warm.
  • 7Stir the pan drippings,blending well. Add mushrooms to drippings and simmer 10 minutes. Add heavy cream and reduce by 2/3rds until thick and creamy.
  • 8Spoon sauce over chicken breasts and serve.
    Bon Apetit!!!
