Sun-Dried Tomato and Basil Stuffed Chicken Breasts Sun-Dried Tomato and Basil Stuffed Chicken Breasts are easy yet mouthwatering. Plus they’re ready in under 30 minutes! One of the things Ben and I have been marveling over recently is the fact that someday Lincoln, our newborn baby, will be a teenager who drives (and dates, but I can’t even think about that right now!) then a fully functioning adult who has a job, house, car, and kids of his own. Before all of that, though, comes the school-aged years full of band concerts, parent-teacher conferences, soccer practice – scratch that, Ben says golf practice – and lots of homework. That is to say, as busy as life feels right now, it’s only going to get busier. Looks like a lowly ol’ chicken breast right? While quick and easy, this chicken feels anything but. Start by making the Sun-Dried Tomato and Basil stuffing which, as I mentioned, is spiked with two types of cheeses – muwahaha! To keep with the theme I used Light Mozzarella Sun-Dried Tomato & Basil Wedges. Print this recipe! Serves 4

Molasses Dipped Chicken with Mango Salsa - Simply Sated Molasses Dipped Chicken with Mango Salsa is the star in this flavor-packed show. Chicken dipped in molasses and buttermilk, dredged in spiced-up flour, seared and baked. Then, it is topped off with sweet and spicy Mango Salsa. The two main actors, chicken and salsa, are quite wonderful by themselves, but for this recipe, place them together and let their characters develop. Every time I hear the word “salsa” I am reminded of the “The Pitch” episode of Seinfeld. If you don’t remember, here is a short excerpt from Jerry and George’s conversation at the diner table: “George: Why don’t they have salsa on the table? Seinfeld didn’t become one of the highest rated television shows of all time because each character was great; it was due to unrivaled character development and interaction. It is the same with Molasses-Dipped Chicken with Mango Salsa. This dish has it all. Place a big helping of this delicious combo on your plate and sit yourself in front of the TV. Enjoy!
