Smoked cheddar stuffed chicken/w green apple slaw..(BA)
Happy Blogiversary to me!! July 2nd was my 1 year food blogging anniversary. I made this dish at my MIL's house on Saturday night. I doubled the recipe as I was cooking for 8ppl. This recipe is from the August 05 issue of Bon Appetit and believe it or not, it comes from a Canadian. Ted Reader aka King of the Q. ( Ted's own link isnt working, so I linked to an article on him.).
Anyway, this was a simple recipe to made. The recipe calls for boneless, skin on breasts which can be hard to find. My MIL bought bone-in breasts and I deboned them myself. A slit is cut into each one, and a stuffing of smoked cheddar( or gouda), cream cheese, maple syrup, and fresh sage is stuffed into each one. The tenderloin is placed over the stuffing to hold it into place( in theory, but in reality, it didnt work that well). I made a glaze with Grade C Maple syrup, scotch wiskey and brown sugar. This is brushed over the chicken while grilling and the rest is served as a sauce. The slaw is simple too. Julliened green apples, fresh sage, green onion, red onion, lemon juice, maple syrup( just a touch) and evoo. My MIL raved over this as this is simply not something you'd see in these parts. We also had grilled potatoes and steamed carrots with this. This is definatly something I'd make again.
