How to Make Pistachio/Apple Chicken w/ Mushroom sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Saute shallots in butter and set aside.
  2. Place chicken breasts between 2 sheets of wax paper and pound until slightly flattened.
  3. Combine cream cheese,pistachio nuts, nutmeg, sauteed shallots and diced apple.
  4. Divide 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)
  5. Lightly dust tops of chicken breasts with flour, salt and pepper.
  6. Add 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.
  7. Stir 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.
  8. Spoon sauce over chicken breasts and serve.
    Bon Apetit!!!
