Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 8 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 1 large tart apple, peeled and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1/2 cup shredded fontina cheese

Directions

Yield: 8 servings.

  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first six ingredients. Carefully cut a pocket in each chicken breast half; place in bag. Seal and turn to coat; refrigerate for 1 hour.
  2. In a small nonstick skillet, saute apple in butter until tender. Transfer to a small bowl. Stir in the cheese, cherries, salt and pepper. Drain chicken, discarding marinade; stuff with apple mixture. Secure with soaked toothpicks.
  3. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack. Grill chicken, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 5-8 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 170°. Discard toothpicks. 

We love this recipe because it combines cheese, chicken, and fruit. What an awesome way to fit in many of the food groups.
