Blue Cheese-Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Ingredients
4
large skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 1 pound total)
 
Salt
 
Pepper
1
3 ounce package cream cheese, softened
1/4
cup crumbled blue cheese (1 ounce)
1/2
cup toasted chopped pecans
2
tablespoons margarine or butter, melted
1/4
teaspoon paprika
 
Snipped parsley (optional)

Directions

  1. Place each breast half between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Working from center to the edges, pound lightly with the flat side of a meat mallet to 1/4-inch thickness. Remove plastic wrap. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. In a small bowl combine cream cheese, blue cheese, and pecans. Place about 1/4 cup cheese mixture on each chicken breast. Fold chicken around filling to form a mound; repeat with remaining chicken.
  3. Place chicken portions in a 2-quart square baking dish. In a small bowl combine margarine or butter and paprika. Brush each chicken portion with mixture. Bake, uncovered, in a 350 degree F. oven about 30 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink. Sprinkle with parsley, if desired. Makes 4 servings.
