Stuffed Chicken Breasts with Sweet Potatoes. Enjoy these flavors together. Different than usual Sweet Potato Casseroles. Just created it. Old boy friend was embarrassed to say chicken "breasts," called them chicken "chests" --in his memory, for this recipe, I'll call them "chests."
- 4 boneless chicken, chests split with pocket (Breasts)
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 cup white wine (your choice)
- 1 cup low sodium chicken broth
- 1⁄3 cup shred. coconut, fresh if desired
- 1⁄2 cup raisins
- 1⁄4 cup onion, diced
- 1⁄4 cup green pepper, diced
- 1 garlic clove, pressed
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 4 slices day-old bread (Pulse in food processor to equal approx. 3/4 Bread Crumbs)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1⁄4 cup white wine (more if needed to moisten)
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1⁄2 cup mango, diced
- 4 medium size sweet potatoes
- 2 tablespoons butter, softened
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- Make Stuffing for Chests-Saute in butter: Raisins, green pepper, garlic, onion, coconut. Once softened, add bread crumbs, ground Ginger, diced mango, beaten egg and white wine. Mixture should be moist and thick.
- Rinse and dry each chicken chest. Place approximately 2-3 Tbls stuffing mixture in each one (amt will depend on size of chest and pocket).

Return to microwave to heat thoroughly (approx. 2 min or less).

Okay, so I didn't have the coconut or the mango's but what the heck thought I would try it anyway. Followed all the rest. Turned out great. Cannot wait to try the real thing!
