This meal was so fantastic, I wanted to share it with you immediately after eating. I couldn’t stop thinking about it the rest of the evening after eating, and I wished it were on the menu for the following evening as well. All signs of a great dish, I tell you. It is definitely a meal that is nice enough to serve to guests, but I loved it so much I’m sure we’ll enjoy it on plenty of regular weeknights as well. This may seem a bit complicated but I assure you, it’s easier than it may seem and definitely worth any extra effort it does require.
The chicken breasts are filled with a mixture of mushrooms, leeks and fresh herbs as well as very finely processed chicken tenderloins which help keep the filling cohesive, sturdy and moist. The dish is finished off with an unbelievable pan sauce that is full of flavor. Please, please don’t skip the sauce – it is what takes this meal from good to great.
Side note – Today’s giveaway is one of my most used and most loved kitchen items, a mechanical pastry bag from Williams Sonoma. I actually just purchased a new one because after four years, I finally wore out my old one with so much use! See the Facebook page to enter. Details will be posted before 8 am.
