DSC 0714 Apple Braised Stuffed Chicken for our Friendsgiving Dinner! November is by far my favorite time of year. Being in New England, I actually welcome the cooler temperatures and love seeing the leaves change right before my eyes. It also signals the start of the holiday season which brings about large dinners with family and friends. I absolutely love spending Thanksgiving with my family and friends, but this year is going to be a little different. This year we are going to be spending Thanksgiving in Disney (I know..pretty cool) but that means we won’t have the traditional dinner that I like to cook up at home. However, my friends came up with an ingenious idea. We are going to have a Pot Luck “Friendsgiving” Dinner the week after Thanksgiving where everyone is invited to bring a favorite dish to share.  I think this is going to be a great idea because we are going to end up with such fun and innovative recipes that we can all delight in. As for me, I am planning to make my Apple Braised Stuffed Chicken using wonderful Kraft products.DSC 0721 Apple Braised Stuffed Chicken for our Friendsgiving Dinner!

I got the idea for the Apple Braised Chicken from my mom who has made a similar type of recipe for me since I was a small girl. I decided to spice the recipe up a bit to make it more fun for the upcoming holidays. My very first stop in making my recipe was to head to Walmart and purchase some essentials such as Kraft Stove Top and Miracle Whip. While my mom’s recipe was not stuffed chicken, I thought it would be great to stuff my chicken with an original Stove Top stuffing.  That way it would be more “Thanksgivingish.” I readily found all my Kraft products in the food aisles at my local Walmart. Once I checked out, I was ready to begin the fun of cooking.

DSC 0727 Apple Braised Stuffed Chicken for our Friendsgiving Dinner! I tried a few different ways of making this recipe before I figured out that using Kraft Stove Top mixed with mayo, along with other ingredients, would make a very nice stuffing for the chicken. I never stuffed chicken before but it worked out really well. My one suggestion when you try this is to make sure you use toothpicks to seal the chicken prior to putting it in the oven. I did two takes because the first time it fell apart because I did not seal my stuffing in. With using the toothpicks, I had no trouble though and it stayed put, even when I started eating it.DSC 0712 Apple Braised Stuffed Chicken for our Friendsgiving Dinner!

If you are heading to a “Friendsgiving” Dinner, definitely give my Apple Braised Stuffed Chicken a try. I love the fact that the core of this recipe was one I grew up with time and time again. I then added my own touches to make it a new recipe for my family, so it can be passed down generation to generation.

    That sounds delicious! I have several stuffed chicken recipes that I make, but nothing quiet like this. I can’t wait to try it.

    What a creative way to serve chicken! I’ve never made stuffed chicken, guess I’m going to have to give this a try! Would make a great Thanksgiving dish!

  3. Ann Bacciaglia says

    Oh my i am definitely going to be making these. They look so delicious. I love to make cottage roll for the Holidays. Glazed with brown sugar and mustard.

  4. says

    I love stuffing chicken with Stove Top – but I’ve never made mine as fancy as yours! We’ve been looking for new ways to jazz up our chicken so I will definitely add this to our menu soon! Thanks for sharing #client

    I really don’t care for Craisins but I love the rest of the recipe. I am going to try this without the Craisins. Sounds delicious.

  6. Karen says

    I made this tonight only didn’t stuff. I didn’t have the patience or the time. Instead, I cut the chicken breasts all the way through, layered them on the bottom and then covered them with the stuffing mixture. I used fresh cranberries instead of craisins (that’s what I had on hand). I baked them covered for 15 min, uncovered for 15 minutes (the chicken was still quite thick). My family LOVED it! So glad I found your recipe! Thanks for sharing it. It’s a keeper!
