Stuffed Chicken with Goat Cheese, Dried Cherries, Pears and Walnuts








     Stuffed Chicken with Goat Cheese, Dried Cherries, Pears and Walnuts!!!  Yum Yum  If you have a Cast Iron Skillet you will love love love making your Chicken in it with a little searing and roasting.  It turns out perfectly tender and juicy every time!  :)

Ingredients~
3-4 Large Chicken Breast
1 Tablespoon EVOO
1 Yellow Onion, diced
1 Tablespoon chopped jarred Garlic
Dash Cayenne
3oz shredded Carrots
2 cups Spinach Leaves
Half Pear, diced
Crumbled Goat Cheese ( you will find the best at Whole Foods), desired amount
Dried Cherries, 12-15, purchased from Vitacost.com, for 10 dollars off your first order of 30 dollars click on http://goo.gl/jjEvV7
3-4 Walnut Halves, crumbled
Cooking Twine
Salt, as desired

     Slice a deep slice into the side of each Chicken Breast and set aside, making sure not to cut all the way thru so as to form a pocket.  Heat EVOO, Onion, Garlic and Cayenne in Cast Iron Skillet til golden brown.  Add Shredded Carrots til softened, then add Spinach til wilted, and finish by adding Pear and heating thru.  Salt as needed, may need to add skillet lid when cooking Carrots to speed up the process.  Set mixture aside to cool.  Fill Chicken Breast pockets with Cherries, crumbled Walnut Halves and Goat Cheese, then divide the Pear mixture and fill equally into each pocket.  Use Cooking Twine to secure at three different spots along each Chicken Breast.  Return to Cast Iron Skillet and sear 3 sides of the secured stuffed Chicken Breast, but not the stuffed side.  Then cover the skillet with foil and Bake at 375 for 35 minutes.  Remove and serve.  Enjoy  :)
