Apple and Brie Stuffed Chicken

This Apple and Brie Stuffed Chicken with a maple-Dijon glaze may sound a bit fancy, but it comes together easily with just a few ingredients! Don’t be intimidated by stuffing the chicken breasts, it only takes a few minutes. You’ll just slice the breasts in half to create a top and bottom, open them up, and place the apples and cheese inside. Sear them, glaze them, bake them and you’re done! The sweetness of the apples with the creamy mild Brie has a nice light flavor and the maple-mustard glaze adds a sweet and tangy richness. The chicken comes out juicy and perfectly cooked and each stuffed breast makes for a filling, satisfying serving. Better still, each piece is just 355 calories or 7 Green, 4 Blue or 4 Purple WW SmartPoints!

One of the nice things about this Apple and Brie Stuffed Chicken is that it’s really easy to make more or less depending on your needs. Just feeding yourself? Halve the recipe! Want to make 6 or 8 pieces for a larger family? No problem. I will give you fair warning, I love this recipe and get sad if I don’t make enough for leftovers. Plan accordingly!

I used two types of Dijon mustard in this recipe, and I love the added texture from the whole grain variety. I recommend using both of course, but if you can’t find the seedy kind or just don’t have it on hand, you can omit it and it will still be delicious. I use my store brand (Wegmans), but Trader Joe’s and many other brands have a whole grain Dijon.

Apple and Brie Stuffed Chicken

This Apple and Brie Stuffed Chicken with a Maple Dijon glaze is surprisingly simple and full of flavor!

Ingredients

  • 4 (6 oz each) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, (24 oz total)
  • 1 medium apple, sliced (I used Granny Smith)
  • 4 ounces light Brie cheese, sliced (I used Trader Joe's, but President brand also has a great light Brie)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon creamy Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon whole grain Dijon mustard, the seedy kind

Instructions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 400. Line a baking sheet withparchment paper and set aside.
  • Place the chicken breasts on a cutting board. Using asharp knife, slice the breasts from the side (creating a top and bottom) almostall the way through. Open each breast at the slit. Divide the apple slicesevenly amongst the four breasts and spread across the surface of one side(leaving the other half empty to fold over the filling). Top the apple sliceswith the Brie. When all four breasts are topped on one side, fold the emptyhalf over the filling and press down to make a stuffed breast. Sprinkle eachstuffed breast on both sides with salt, pepper, and thyme.
  • In a large skillet, add the oil and bring overmedium-high heat. Working in batches of two at a time so as not to crowd thepan, add the stuffed chicken breasts to the pan and cook for about 1-2 minute(s)until the bottoms are seared golden. Flip the breasts and cook for anotherminute on the other side to do the same. Transfer the breasts to the preparedbaking sheet.
  • In a small dish, stir together the maple syrup,creamy Dijon, and seedy Dijon. Use a pastry brush to brush the glaze over thetops of the chicken breasts.
  • Place in the pre-heated oven. Bake for 20-25 minutesuntil chicken is fully cooked through.

  1. Sounds super tasty!  It would be helpful if you also included the sodium content per serving, when posting your terrific recipes.  Excess sodium consumption, starting from an early age, is a huge problem in this country.  It seems most folks don’t know, nor do they care.  

  2. This was so good!! When I went to the store, they were out of brie, so I used creamy havarti instead. Worked like a charm, this one’s a keeper! Thank you.5 stars

  3. OMG…what a fabulous and easy recipe.  This is company worthy and will definitely be part of our rotation of favorites.  And only 4 points?  Tastes like heaven!!5 stars

  4. Gonna try and make it tonight for dinner

  5. This was so tasty!!! I’m not the most proficient chef, and I had trouble getting the the cheese and apples to stay inside the chicken. Ha! But it was still delicious! 

  6. I made this for Christmas Eve dinner and it was a hit! The family absolutely loved it. The flavors were delicious. Thank you for your recipes!

  7. I don’t like to dirty a lot of pans, so I didn’t sear the breasts first. It was still delicious!5 stars

  8. Can this dish be frozen?

  9. Made this for dinner tonight! I couldn’t find light Brie so I used the “wee Bree” wedges from President. This was amazing and so easy to do! Started WW back today, thanks for all of your great recipes!

  10. I made this tonight along with your parmesan spinach orzo. Amazing! Quick and easy, delicious! Will definitely make this again.

  11. Delicious and easy to put together! Will definitely be making this one again and again!5 stars

  12. I think that this will be delicious, but as someone fairly new to the kitchen, I had the most impossible time trying to pan sear the chicken breast and keep all of the apples and brie inside. I think next time I will probably cut the breasts in half and skip the searing, and then just top them with apple slices and brie instead of stuffing them.

    • Hi Emily, try using toothpicks or string to keep all that delicious inside the breast while searing 🙂 It works like a charm, and easily removed once cooked 🙂
