"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

Top-ranked recipe named "Brie and Apple Chicken Breasts"
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.

staindjustgo 1 month agoI thought it was pretty good. I wish all the bree didn't ooze out though. I think next time I will make a bowl in the top of the breast so the bree stays put. I also didn't have cider so I used milk, flour and butter to make a gravy with the chicken broth and the leftover apples
NJinGA 5 months agoThis was great! I agree with the comments about using toothpicks or kitchen twine to hold together, and to cut the sauce in half.
missmallorimae 7 months agoFamily said they would eat it again! See other comments about sauce and agree .
Ranj5 7 months agoMade this tonight for my family. It came out great. Put the chicken in a glass pan to cook. The juices in the bottom where great to add to the top of the chicken along with the sauces. Everyone enjoyed it.

Lab1119 1 year agoThis was good! I didn't have Brie on hand so I used goat cheese! I also had to add a dash of flour to thicken the sauce along with some cinnamon as others have suggested. Over all very tasty and will definitely make again!!
katalia369 1 year agoi used skewers to hold two or three pieces of chicken together and served with cous cous, using half sauce half water for the cous cous
Mbreakstone 1 year agoToothpicks help in the oven. This would be good over rice because of the sauce. Make sure to have a good Brie/apple to chicken ratio. Ie bit too thick a piece of chicken. A sweet salad with citrus is a good side.

Kyaeck 1 year agoNo flavor, the Brie disappeared while baking. I thought it was labor intensive also.

elenafeldbaum 1 year agoJust perfect! This is gonna be one of my favorite dishes from now on!
punkinmommy 1 year agoThis was a great dish! The chicken stayed juicy, and the flavors were incredible. I reduced the sauce down by more than half, then added in some cornstarch dissolved in water. Also, I held the chicken together with toothpicks. This is a dish I will definately make again. Thanks for the recipe!
