Shrimp-Stuffed Chicken With Cream Sauce
photo by The Flying Chef
- Ready In:
- 4 chicken breast halves (bone-in, skin-on)
- 4 ounces cream cheese
- 4 green onions, sliced thin
- 1⁄2 lb raw shrimp, cleaned and coarsely chopped
- 1⁄2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1⁄4 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 shallot, minced fine
- 1⁄3 cup dry white wine
- 1 large tomatoes, cored and diced small
- 1⁄4 cup heavy cream
- salt and pepper
- Soften the cream cheese slightly. Mix green onions, shrimp, worcestershire and tabasco into the cream cheese. Divide into 4 equal portions.
- Gently loosen skin at one end of each breast piece, making sure to keep as much skin intact on the long sides as possible. Push one portion of shrimp mixture under skin of each breast piece. Carefully smooth the mixture down the length of the chicken as evenly as you can.
- Bake the chicken at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes, or until chicken tests done. I put mine on a rimmed cookie sheet, you could also use a 9X13 baking dish.
- Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Saute the minced shallot until it just begins to brown.
- Add the wine to the shallots and simmer 5-10 minutes, until the wine has reduced to half.
- Add the tomato to the wine and heat through, then pour in the cream. Bring the wine mixture to a boil, then simmer until sauce reduces and thickens, another 5-10 minutes. Taste sauce and add salt and pepper to your liking.
- Spoon sauce over chicken and serve.

This was awesome!!! They only had one breast left with skin on, so I bought 2 skinless breasts and placed stuffing inside and secured with prosciutto. I made the filling the same apart from that. I also made a couple of changes to the sauce as we are not keen on fresh tomatoes so I added sun-dried which were really lovely. I also added a teaspoon of chicken stock granules and a teaspoon of dijon mustard. The cream cheese filling although naughty was absolutely gorgeous. Which really was naughty for us, as I made as stated even though it was just for 2, as I was filling the inside of 2 very large breasts, so it was quite fattening but well worth every bite. A great post Sheynath!!! A company worthy dish any day of the week.
