Stuffed Chicken Breast

Had a large, skinless, boneless chicken breast left over from another cook so I decided to stuff it.

Goat cheese, fresh baby spinach, sun-dried tomatoes:

Added saute'd onions, garlic, and Shittake mushrooms. Oregano, basil, thyme sprinkled on before rolling:

Rolled, secured with toothpicks and seasoned with the above plus DP Shaking the Tree. Cooked indirect, elevated at 300* until the internal (stuffing) registered 165*. (Pecan and apple chips). Foiled and rested:


Plated with grilled yellar squash and sliced Asian eggplant:

Thanks for looking..... :)

    Great looking cook Clark.

    I don't think I have ever tasted goat cheese.

    Wifey has a 'stroke' when I use bacon - "too much fat" and "not healthy", etc..... :(

    You get the drift. It would definitely have made the chicken a little less dry. :whistle:

    It was easy peasy, once I had all the ingredients (trip to the store :unsure: ). :)

    KENT !!!! OMG !!

    It is the smoothest, best tasting stuff!!! It's about $4.00 per 4 ounces (used 2 oz for this recipe). Great on pizzas also!

    Looks like you knocked that one out of the park, Clark. I'd eat that in a second.

    "you are serious Clark" Did you have any tomatoes in the earth boxes? I am getting a few now,so hot here.

    Thanks, Faith. It's been a busy summer so far..... :ohmy:
  • Misippi EggerMisippi Egger Posts: 5,095
    Thanks, Jason. It was as good as it looked !

    Full garden with 8 Earthboxes this year and automatic watering system. The 4 tomato plants slowly wilted and died, despite visits to the coop and tLking with a horticulturist, insecticidal soap, BT, and malathion. Don't have a clue what happened.
    The whole box of peppers shriveled up and died - even the replacement plants x 2.
    Did get some squash, but not much.
    Cucumbers did the same as the peppers, after I got 2 dukes.
    New tomatoes (old squash box) are shaded and starting to look sick.

    Not to happy with things this year .... :angry:

    Holy crap, Clark. :ermm: How'd that taste?

    Looks like a winner, winner... ;)

    It was really good, Adam. A little drier than I would ideally like on the outside parts of the chicken, so I might consider brining next time, since the wifey 'throws a fit' if I cover with bacon :ohmy:

    Changes (improvements) - more spinach as it really shrank when cooked (duh), and maybe a few more mushrooms. Oh yeah, and remember to add the toasted pine nuts BEFORE sealing it up with toothpicks :angry: . Not easy stuffing pine nuts down in btwn the toothpicks into the stuffing. :blush:

    It was truly a "do again" cook! :woohoo:
  • approximately how much time will this take to get to 165 internal (ballpark figure would be fine so i know when to start checking)?

    Looks really good.  I'm going to try that this weekend.  Did you pound the chicken breast first?  
  • @Mark. I didn't have to pund the breasts. It was a whole, boneless breast (huge), connected in the middle, so I just put the stuffing on there and folded it over. Held it together with toothpicks.

    @Greygoose. I don't remember how long I cookedit, but at 300, I imagine it was between 45 min and 90 minutes. Just have to be sure the stuff in the middle is at the right temp.
  • That looks awesome, Clark.  I'm a BGE rookie and I live in Madison too.  We'll probably smell each other's smoke from time to time.  Are you Rusty's brother?

    I made this last night.  Incredible!!!  I substituted the sun dried tomatoes with roasted red peppers.  It wasn't dry at all.
  • LDDLDD Posts: 1,225
    looks good
    context is important :)
  • Glad you liked it Mark!  Sounds like a great substitution.  :-)
