Blue Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Blue Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts created by Probably This

Yet another recipe from the local paper that I want to try ... some day. I did try this recently and we all really liked it. Next time I think I'll place a small amount of blue cheese on top of the chicken when it comes out of the oven and is served. The cheese/butter mixture melts during cooking and even though the flavor is wonderful, everyone said more cheese on top would be nice. Also, I think the little bit of sauce that there is, would be nice thickened and spooned over the chicken too. Let me know what you think.

    I found the chicken to be juicy, cooked to 168 degrees. Paprika added a bit of color to the chicken, which it needed. The "stuffing" had a strong salty flavor from the Roquefort I used. Of course, the butter and cheese melted out, and I think I'd prefer a variety of textures and an actual stuffing. I used fresh thyme instead of dried as I have it growing. After reading the reviews I crumbled more cheese on top, spooned a little of the pan drippings (butter and cheese) over the breasts, and topped with a bit of thyme. Were I to make this again, I would bread the chicken and fortify the stuffing with additional ingredients.
