Chicken and Stuffing from Delectalicious.com

Here's what you'll need:

1 - 16 oz can WHOLE cranberry sauce (not jellied!)

3/4 cup low sodium chicken broth

1/4 cup half and half

1 large egg, lightly beaten

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

3 Tablespoons unsalted butter

1 onion, finely chopped

1 celery rib, finely chopped

1 bag cornbread stuffing mix (5 cups)

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts


Preheat the oven to 450 and move an oven rack to the upper third of the oven.  Whisk together cranberry sauce, chicken broth, half and half, egg, salt, and pepper.


Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a non-stick oven safe skillet over medium heat.  Cook onion and celery until softened.


Stir onion and celery into the cranberry mixture.


Fold in the cornbread stuffing and set aside.


PAT THE CHICKEN DRY WITH PAPER TOWELS.  This will allow them to brown up better!  Salt and pepper the chicken.  Melt remaining butter (1 Tablespoon) in skillet.  Cook chicken until golden brown on each side.


Cover the chicken with the stuffing mixture and bake in upper 1/3 of oven until the stuffing is lightly browned and chicken is cooked through.  About 10 to 12 minutes.


Cheers,
