" Brie cheese" and "small apple" are two of the tags cooks chose for Brie and Apple Chicken Breasts."I was looking for something different to do with chicken. This one qualifies and tastes wonderful. It makes for a great presentation. A little more brie would be good but then I really like brie. My only suggestion would be to stuff the chicken instead of placing the apples between the loin and breast. Mostly because the loin on most breasts does not cover enough and the apples and brie leak out easily and also it is sometimes hard to get chicken breasts with the loin attached (for a good price)." - nabcoengineer

Brie and Apple Chicken Breasts Preparation
Preheat the oven to 450F. Warm 1 tablespoon butter in a large, non-stick saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the apples and saute until softened. Set the saute pan aside because you will need it again. Tuck a slice of Brie and several slices of apple into the pocket on the underside of the chicken breasts between the breast and the tenderloin.
Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Pat a little flour onto both sides of each chicken breast.
In the saute pan, warm 1 tablespoon butter over high heat. When the butter foams add the chicken breasts and brown them on both sides. Transfer the chicken to a sheetpan, stuffed-side-down, and put it into the oven for 12 to 14 minutes. While the chicken is cooking, make the sauce. Pour the cider and broth into the saut pan and boil it over high heat until reduced to about 1 1/2 cups. Swirl in the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Season to taste with salt and pepper. To serve, divide the chicken among 4 plates and pour a little sauce over each.
