Have you ever woken up really excited about getting to eat your leftovers? Yeah, neither have I until now. It was seriously 10 in the morning and I was debating whether it was alright to eat now or wait until actual lunch time. This is like a one dish thanksgiving. To make it even easier you can totally skip stuffing the chicken and just serving the stuffing on the side but, I had lots of fun pounding at the chicken.
- 3-4 chicken breasts, pounded flat
- 1 can whole berry cranberry sauce
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup fresh squeezed orange juice (regular orange juice will work)
- 1 box stuffing mix
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1 celery stalk, diced
- 1/2 small sweet onion, diced
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon butter
Directions: Pre heat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium pot melt butter and add onion, celery, and garlic until onions are soft. Add water and bring to a boil reduce heat and stir in stuffing. Place aside to cool. In a medium size bowl mix together cranberry sauce, sugar, and orange juice. Place two chicken breasts in a gallon sized Ziploc bag and pound with roller until 1/4 of an inch thick and repeat with remaining breasts. Lay chicken breasts flat, top with stuffing and roll together. Use toothpicks if needed to keep together. Place chicken into a lightly greased baking dish and top with cranberry sauce. Bake covered for 20 minutes and uncovered for another 20 minutes.
