Pecan Crusted Blueberry Chicken Breast

Pecan Breaded Blueberry Stuffed Chicken Breast

Ingredients

2 Large Skinned and Deboned Chicken Breasts (the thicker the better)

½ cup Fresh Blueberries

1 Tablespoon chopped Fresh Basil

¼ cup shredded soft white cheese (mozzarella, Baby Bell, Monterey Jack, etc)

1 cup fresh bread crumbs (I use a fresh 12 grain, Flax Seed/Quinoa or multigrain whole wheat bread)

½ cup chopped Pecans

2 large egg whites beaten slightly

Salt and Pepper To taste

2 Tablespoon Oil (grapeseed, olive, any health oil that can be heated)

 

Slice a pocket into the middle of the Chicken Breasts

 

Stuffing

½ cup Fresh Blueberries

1 Tbls. chopped Fresh Basil

¼ cup shredded soft white cheese

Sprinkle of Salt and Pepper

Mix all ingredients, I use my fingers so I don’t crush my blueberries, Stuff each chicken breast with mixture.

 

Breading

Chop whole Grain bread into crumbs (I use my Braun Hand Mixer with the chopper container attachment)

Chop Pecans into crumbs (Same as above)

Sprinkle of Salt and Pepper

Beat egg whites slightly

Mix bread crumbs and chopped pecans, sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Put half of the mixture onto a plate.

Dip stuffed chicken breast into beaten egg white and set on top of bread crumbs on plate, sprinkle more of the bread crumb mixture on top, with your hands gently cover all of the stuffed chicken breast so it is completely covered. BE GENTLE SO YOU DO NOT LOSE ANY OF YOUR STUFFING.

(Discard any of the crumb mixture you have had the chicken breasts exposed to)

Coat an oven proof pan with 2 tablespoons oil – I cook most everything in cast iron pans as I love the way they hold and distribute the heat.

Brush top and sides of Chicken Breast with oil

Place coated chicken breasts in pan and place into a 350 degree F. Oven

Bake for about 45 minutes (this will depend on your oven) or until chicken breasts are cooked.

(note: sometime a little of the juice from the berries will leak out so ensure that when you are checking them you do not mistake the juice for blood. If you cook them too long the chicken will be dry!)
