Creamy Gouda cheese and sweet apples make these stuffed chicken breasts a winning recipe! Pair with smoky roasted sweet potatoes for a sheet pan supper that will make everyone happy.
yield: 4 SERVINGS
2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts (mine were 10 ounces each – shoot for 4-6 ounces per serving)
1.5 ounces gouda cheese, thinly sliced
1/2 large apple, thinly sliced (I used Honeycrisp – any firm apple will work)
1 teaspoon olive oil for chicken
1 teaspoon fresh thyme, more as desired for garnish
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 fresh ground pepper
For Sweet Potatoes:
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Spray a large baking dish or sheet pan with nonstick cooking spray. Split each chicken breast across but not through and open like a book (be careful, you can easily cut yourself doing this!). This is also known as butterflying. On one side of the chicken, lay out 7-8 thin apple slices followed by 4-5 slices of cheese. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme. Fold over and drizzle with 1/2 teaspoon olive oil. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
