Chicken: Atrichoke-Stuffed Chicken Beast

Artichoke-Stuffed Chicken Breasts

6 (4 oz.) chicken breasts
1 Clove garlic
1 1/2 cup frozen or canned artichoke hearts, rinsed and drained
1 Egg yolk
2 tbs. Heavy cream
1 cup fresh bread crumbs
Dash nutmeg
1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley divided
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.
