Cranberry and rice stuffed chicken rolls are an elegant recipe when topped with a cranberry and apple relish.
Heat oven to 375°F. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in 1-quart saucepan until sizzling; add almonds. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until nuts are lightly toasted (1 to 2 minutes). Stir in all remaining stuffing ingredients. Continue cooking until mixture just comes to a boil (3 to 5 minutes). Reduce heat to low. Cover; cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed (15 to 20 minutes).
Spray 13x9-inch baking dish with no-stick cooking spray. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Spoon about 1/3 cup rice stuffing onto each chicken breast; roll up chicken over stuffing. Place chicken into prepared pan, seam-side down.
Combine 1 tablespoon butter and parsley in small bowl; brush over chicken. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until chicken reaches at least 165°F. and juices run clear when pierced with a fork.
Meanwhile, melt 1 tablespoon butter in 1-quart saucepan; add all remaining relish ingredients. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until onion is crisply tender (1 to 2 minutes).
To serve, remove chicken rolls to serving platter; top with relish.
Make Ahead Method: Prepare stuffed chicken breasts as directed but do not brush with butter mixture or bake. Wrap each stuffed chicken breast with plastic food wrap. Place into resealable plastic freezer bag or container; freeze up to 3 months. Thaw chicken in refrigerator at least 24 hours. Unwrap chicken, place into greased 13x9-inch baking dish. Brush with butter mixture, sprinkle with bread crumbs and bake as directed. Prepare relish while chicken is baking.

This is one of my very favorite recipes. I have served it numerous times for company and everyone has asked for the recipe. I omit the almonds and add about 1/3 cup of stove top dressing mix (from the can, not the box) along with the rice for the stuffing. I also add a little more butter over the top. Wonderful recipe.
The cookbook states that this recipe can be frozen for up to three months. Prepare stuffed chix recipe as directed, but do not brush with butter mixture or bake. Wrap each stuffed chicken breast with plastic food wrap. Place into resealable plastic freezer bag or container. Thaw chicken in fridge for at least 24 hours. When thawed, place in 13X9 baking dish, brush with butter mixture, sprinkle with bread crumbs and bake. I will bake for 22 minutes next time. Prepare relish while chicken is baking. Delicious and colorful!
I thought this recipe was very good and am planning to make it for a dinner party. I left the chicken bake for 30 minutes, however, next time, I'll go for 25 minutes. My husband absolutely enjoyed this entre.
This was a positive "do again" dinner. I cooked this meal as directed and it was a new, great way to cook chicken. The cranberries and apple really complemented the chicken.
I used Jonathon Apples in place of the green apples. My friends thought this meal was elegant. It was fairly simple to do and tasted good.

It was a beautiful day and Dad offered to take over dinner. He found a manly recipe for Mustard & Bourbon Glazed Pork Chops and made a plan.

After you make the hamburger patties and light the grill, what do you get out of the fridge?
Probably ketchup, mustard and relish. Maybe mayo, lettuce and tomatoes. Those are the classics, and I love them, too.
But, sometimes I like to look at the burger and bun as just a starting point for some fun, creative cooking. More ...
