how to make stuffed chicken-
HONEY MUSTARD SAUCE- Prepare the honey mustard sauce. In a bowl, combine the mayo with sour cream, Dijon mustard, honey, and paprika until creamy.
BACON- Cut the bacon into small bite-sized pieces and saute until desired crispiness, remove from skillet.
MUSHROOMS- Slice the mushrooms and sautee in the bacon grease. Remove from the skillet.
STUFF CHICKEN- Gently cut through the center of the chicken breast to create a pocket (careful not to cut all the way through). Stuff the chicken with the mushrooms, bacon and cheese and then sear and cook the chicken breast.
BAKE: Add the leftover mushrooms and bacon to the skillet, top with cheese and pour the sauce over everything. Bake until cheese melts and is golden.
homemade mustard sauce-
There is nothing better than homemade sauces! When making your own sauces you are skipping all the added ingredients that we don’t need in a store-bought sauce. This homemade honey mustard sauce is AMAZING! The sauce is sweet and has a perfect balance of honey and Dijon!
In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise with sour cream, honey, Dijon mustard and paprika until creamy.
what cheese do I use?
The best cheese to use for this recipe is Colby Jack cheese, Four cheese or Mexican cheese. We love to use block cheese, it has fewer additives to keep freshness. Just shred the block cheese instead of buying already shredded cheese.
