This is a recipe I created with bits and pieces from other recipes. Great for the fall when you have extra apples and don't want to make sweets.

  • Place chicken breasts between two sheets of heavy plastic (resealable freezer bags work well) on a solid, level surface. Firmly pound chicken with the smooth side of a meat mallet to a thickness of 1/4-inch.

  • Spread apples and Cheddar cheese evenly over each chicken breast. Starting at one end, roll each breast around filling and secure the roll with a toothpick through the center. Transfer breasts to prepared baking dish. Drizzle olive oil over each breast and sprinkle with remaining thyme.

  • Cook chicken breasts in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 25 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the meat should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

I used 20 ounces chicken and 3 medium-sized apples. I diced the chicken and cooked it in oil on the stove top. My mistake was to use 2 tbs olive oil. WAY too greasy. 1 tsp as the recipe suggests would have been better. Overall the flavor was good. Read More

I made it almost as the recipe stated but added salt pepper and garlic to the chicken before rolling it. I also added more cheese on top. I thought it was ok but a little bland which I realize would have been more so had I not added seasonings. The chicken was a little dry as well almost like it needed a sauce of some sort with it. Perhaps with applesauce even. I liked the flavor of apples and chicken together so good to know in the future I can experiment more with those together. My husband seemed to enjoy it the most my teenage daughter ate it as well. I may make it again but will add/adjust things probably. I had to cook it an additional 15 minutes or so to be fully cooked.

EVAUGHN69 I think you should put your photo up with this recipe! I do think I would use this next time as a base for something a little different. I was thinking about sautéing lightly the apple with a little shallot and something to add some color to it. I did use my friend Lissa 's Chai Tea Jelly to top my baked rollup for a little moisture. Also mine did take a little longer than 25 minutes to bake---maybe 10-15 minutes more. I love the idea of this dish and I'll use it again. Thanks! Read More

Really good. My guest ate two whole chicken breasts! I used jazz apples and just cut them length wise and stuffed them in. I didn't use bacon like other people did and it was still really good. Read More
