We "bought" this dinner from a young man at a Boy Scout fundraising auction and were pleasantly surprised at how yummy it was. When I got the recipe from him and realized that it's not even that time consuming to make, I was pleased! This is another one of those rare meals that everyone in the family enjoys and one time we were even told by a guest that it was the best meal that he'd EVER had in his entire life. I'm not sure I would go that far with my praise, but it's definitely still a keeper!
6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 boxes Stove Top stuffing
2 Tbs. butter
1/2 cup mustard
1/2 cup honey
2 Tbs. maple syrup (you can use the cheap kind)
2 Tbs. vinegar
2 Tbs. brown sugar
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. salt
Heat butter on high. Brown chicken breasts until nice looking golden brown, but do NOT cook all the way through (you want the centers to remain pink).
Prepare stuffing as directed on box. Line bottom of 9x13" pan with thin layer of stuffing. Split chicken breasts so that they will open like a book. Stuff breasts with stuffing. Cover with tin foil.
Bake at 375° for 30-40 minutes or until breasts are cooked thoroughly. Remove foil and cover chicken and stuffing liberally with glaze. Bake another 10 minutes uncovered. Serves 6.
