Artichoke-Stuffed Chicken Breast Recipe
6 4 oz chicken breasts
1 clove garlic
1 1/2 cup frozen or canned artichoke
1 hearts, rinsed and drained
1 egg yolk

1 cup fresh bread crumbs
1 dash nutmeg
1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley,
1/4 cup chicken broth
Heat the oven to 425 degrees. Grease a baking pan.
Salt and pepper the chicken breasts. With a very sharp small knife,
cut a pocket horizontally into each breast. Do not cut in half. Set
aside while you make the stuffing.
In a food processor, place the garlic, artichoke hearts, egg yolk,
cream, bread crumbs, nutmeg and about 1/4 cup of parsley. Process to
mix, but do not puree.
Place 2 to 3 tablespoons of stuffing in each breast pocket. Do not
close the pocket-the stuffing will puff up and out a bit.
Place the stuffed breasts in the baking dish. Pour the chicken broth
over the chicken. Sprinkle with paprika. Bake 12 to 15 minutes. Place
the breasts on a platter, spoon the pan juices over and sprinkle with
reserved 2 tablespoons parsley.
