Apple and Cheese Stuffed Chicken

Nick made this for us for dinner the other night, it was surprisingly delicious. I would've never guessed cheddar cheese and apples as a good cooked mixture, but apparently it is.

Serving Size: 2

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, flattened (or 1 large one)
1/2 cup green apples, chopped
2 tbsp cheddar cheese, grated
1 tbsp bread crumbs
1 tsp Italian seasoning
4 toothpicks
1 tbsp butter
1/4 cup rice wine or dry white wine
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 tsp corn starch

1. Combine apple, cheese, Italian seasoning, and bread crumbs. Set aside.
2. Flatten chicken breasts between two sheets of wax paper to 1/4 inch thickness. Divide apple mixture between the two chicken breasts, and roll up each breast. Secure with toothpicks.
3. Melt butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Brown stuffed chicken breasts on each side. Add wine and water and any remaining apple mixture to skillet. Cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes until chicken is no longer pink.
4. Transfer chicken to serving platter. Add corn starch to remaining juices in pan. Cook and stir consistently until thickened.
5. Plate the chicken and pour sauce over top. Serve immediately and enjoy!
