Ingredients

2 bacon strips, diced
1 small tart apple, peeled and coarsely chopped
2 tablespoons dried minced onion
2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
1/2 to 1 teaspoon chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, chopped
2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened apple juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper


In a small skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp.


Using a slotted spoon, remove to paper towels; drain, reserving 1 teaspoon drippings.


In the drippings, saute apple until tender.


Add the onion, applesauce, chipotle peppers and bacon; saute 2 minutes longer.


Cut a pocket in each chicken breast half; stuff with apple mixture.


In a small skillet, brown chicken in oil on both sides.


Transfer to an ungreased 8-in. square baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 12-15 minutes or until chicken juices run clear.


Meanwhile, add the flour, apple juice, salt and pepper to the skillet; stir to loosen browned bits.


Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.


Serve with chicken.

Notes

I love anything that has chipotle in it. These are great and the recipe is easy to double or triple.

The chicken breasts that I get at the store are too large for one serving, so I usually fillet into 2 peices. Instead of creating a pocket to stuff, I pound them out and roll up around the filling jelly roll style, anchored with a toothpick(s). Make sure that you blend the flour and apple juice together before adding it to the pan or you will end up with a lumpy mess.
