Loaded with flavor, done in 30 minutes, and made in a skillet! This chicken recipe will soon be a family favorite!


  • 2 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts (approx 6 breasts)
  • 1 large Granny Smith Apple, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 12 toothpicks
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Optional – parsley to garnish


  1. With a paring knife, cut pockets into the chicken breasts, careful not to cut all the way through. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl combine the apples, cheese, thyme, and garlic powder.
  3. Stuff each chicken breast with an equal portion of the apple mixture, securing with 1 or 2 toothpicks.
  4. Season the chicken with the salt and pepper and sprinkle the flour evenly on all sides of the chicken. Set aside.
  5. In a medium bowl whisk together the wine, broth, and mustard. Set aside.
  6. Heat the oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  7. Place the chicken in the skillet and brown, 2 – 3 minutes on each side.
  8. Add in the wine mixture, and turn the heat down to medium-low. Cover and cook for 7-9 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F.
  9. Remove the lid and cook for 2-3 more minutes to thicken up the sauce.
  10. Remove toothpicks before serving.
  11. Garnish with parsley if desired.


Chicken breasts can be prepped up to a day in advance before cooking.

Store airtight in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
