Let's prep!

Let's cook!

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350°F.
  2. Heat skillet with 1/2 teaspoon canola oil and sauté 1/2 onion and 1/4 cup green onion until soft. 
  3. Add onions and green peppers to stuffing bowl and mix well. 
  4. Coat one side of the chicken in the flour mixture. 
  5. Spoon 1/4 cup stuffing over each chicken breast not coated with flour and roll up securing with a toothpick. It is ok if the stuffing is spilling out over the edges. I tuck it back in after placing in the pan.
  6. Add chicken to the baking dish seam side down and bake uncovered for 45 minutes or chicken reaches 165°F
  7. Let chicken rest for 5 to 10 minutes. 
  8. Heat skillet with 2.5 teaspoons canola oil and sauté half onion, mushrooms, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper until onions are soft. 
  9. Stir milk slurry into the onion and mushroom mixture for 2 – 4 minutes until thickened. Turn off heat. 
  10. Stir in 1/2 cup of sour cream. Serve sauce over chicken. Enjoy!
