Newsletter for Fall 2019
New Season, New Needs!
The seasons have a way of bringing new rhythms to our lives. I think Fall does this more so than the other seasons. Families who have children returning to school find themselves needing to plan and strategize more than they did in Summer. Dinner is one of those reasons! It can be a stress to plan, but it's a great way to connect as a family at the end of a day of separation. Below you will find a recipe for bacon cheddar stuffed chicken breasts. I think you will find them delicious and the best part will be having the family around the table to talk!

Eat Well and Be Well,

Stuffed Chicken Breasts
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 2-2.5 pounds)
8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
8 strips of bacon, cooked and chopped
1 onion, caramelized
BBQ sauce, about 11/2C
Trim chicken and thinly slice almost in half (so it opens like a book). Season with black pepper. Place equal of bacon and cheddar on the open chicken breasts and fold them over. Secure with kitchen twine or toothpicks that have been soaked in water for 20 minutes. Brush a little olive oil on the top of the chicken breasts. You may want to add more pepper. Bake at 375 degrees until chicken reaches at least 165 degrees at its thickest point. This can take as long as 40 minutes, depending on how thick the chicken is. Check temperature at 30 minutes, to avoid overcooking. Top with BBQ sauce and place back in the oven for a few minutes to warm sauce. Top with caramelized onions and serve
