Stuffing: Pimiento Cheese Chicken
Instead of putting tangy pimento cheese spread between two pieces of bread, mix things up and stuff chicken breasts with it. The impressive-looking results of stuffed chicken breasts belie the ease of preparation. You can stuff them up to a day ahead, keep refrigerated, and then simply cook and serve.
Variations: Blue cheese is a classic stuffed chicken breast choice. When it's warmed, blue cheese turns fudgy and rich. Try it in Spinach and Blue Cheese Chicken. Goat cheese is a milder alternative to the pungent blue. It's especially tasty in Bacon and Goat Cheese Chicken. If you like feta cheese, try Mediterranean Chicken. We've partnered this salty, crumbly cheese with briny olives, fresh tomatoes, and extra-virgin olive oil.
