The apricot stuffing in this chicken cutlets recipe adds so much flavor and juiciness, especially when you take the time to tenderize the chicken breasts beforehand. Serve with couscous and stir-fried vegetables.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1/4 C green onion, chopped, including tops
  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger, divided
  • 1/2 C plain stuffing mix
  • 2 whole chicken breasts, pounded into cutlets
  • 4 ripe apricots, halved, pitted, then cut into thin strips
  • 1/2 C apricot preserves
  • 1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, add melted butter, onions, 1/4 teaspoon of the ginger, and the stuffing mix, and mix together until combined well. Divide the stuffing mixture in half and spoon one half into the center of each chicken cutlet. Arrange the apricot wedges on top of the stuffing, dividing evenly between the two cutlets. Wrap the cutlets around the stuffing and apricot and lay in baking dish with the open edge facing down. (Secure with toothpicks or string if desired.) Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes before adding sauce.

To make the sauce, mix apricot preserves, apple cider vinegar, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon ginger in a bowl. Remove baking dish from oven briefly just to pour sauce over chicken, then return to oven and continue cooking for 10 minutes or until chicken is completely cooked through.
