Pecan Stuffed Chicken Breast

Pecan Stuffed Chicken Breast created by Outta Here

Growing up in a small town with a huge pecan tree in the back yard spawned all kinds of ways to use pecans. This is made with boneless breast about a 1/2 lb each. I've also used turkey for a change of taste. Just need to prep a little more stuffing as the breasts are bigger.

    This is really delicious and easy to make. I used Italian chicken sausage. Cooking time was just right. Chicken was very moist. Made for My 3 Chefs game.
