Yield: 6 servings



  • 6 boneless, skinless, chicken breast halves
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup peeled, cored, chopped apple
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 6 slices bacon


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Rinse the chicken and pat it dry. Using a meat mallet, pound each breast to a 1/4-inch thickness. In a medium skillet, melt the butter and add the apple and onion. Sauté until tender, then stir in the orange peel and cinnamon. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the apple mixture onto the center of each breast. Roll the chicken up around the stuffing. Wrap a slice of bacon around each chicken roll and secure with toothpicks or bind with cooking twine. Arrange the chicken rolls on a lightly greased broiler pan. Bake for 25 minutes, and then broil 3 inches from heat for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the bacon is browned on top.



  • 1-1/2 cups apple juice
  • 2 tablespoons apple brandy
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon


While the chicken is baking, whisk the sauce ingredients together in a saucepan until the cornstarch dissolves. Cook the sauce over medium heat until the mixture thickens and boils, stirring constantly. Transfer the cooked chicken rolls to a heated serving platter and cover with sauce. Garnish with apple slices, if desired.
