Making a Meal – Brie and Mango Stuffed Chicken
Unfortunately there’s no comic update this week, due to the delays I’ve been encountering detailed here. Instead, I thought I would share a summer recipe that’s an ol’ favorite of mine.
Brie and Mango Stuffed Chicken Breasts, Wrapped in Bacon!
1 thing of brie cheese
1 thing of bacon (I used turkey bacon)
SIDE DISH INGREDIENTS:
STEP 1: Prepping your food
For the side dish, this means washing your mushrooms and green beans, and slicing off the ends of the green beans.
For the main dish, this means greasing a pan and slicing slits into your chicken breasts. For the mango and Brie, slice is up into pieces (we used thin slices).
STEP 2: Stuffing the chicken
Take your mango and brie slices and insert them into the opening you’ve made in the chicken breast. Don’t worry if it’s popping out – we’ll be taking care of that in a moment.
STEP 3: Wrap your meat…with more meat!
Remember how your brie and mango is sticking out a bit? Well that’s okay, because this is the part where we wrap our chicken with bacon! Completely wrap around the chicken (may take 3-4 slices) so that the brie and mango is completely contained.
Put this into your baking sheet. I cover mine with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick spray to make sure the chicken is easy to remove and doesn’t burn.
STEP 4: Heat the oven
I pre-heat the oven to 300 degrees and cooked for almost an hour, checking after 40 minutes and then looking in every 10 minutes or so after that. You could also try grilling this, just make sure you cook the chicken all the way through.
STEP 5: Cook some veggies!
I just throw some veggies into a pan, add a little water (just enough to coat the bottom), slice in a little butter, add salt, pepper, and rosemary to taste, and put a lid on it. Steam the veggies for 5-10 minutes (depends on how crunchy you like them).
STEP 6: Pull out your meat and put it in your mouth
Once your chicken has been cooked throughout (check it, make sure it’s not raw or pink – meat thermometers are also a good option here), pull it out and let it cool for a bit. I slice into my chicken to make sure it’s cooked throughout. This also lets the brie and mango juices flow out, which is awesome.
Put it on a plate, add your veggies and maybe some rice to go with it. Enjoy!
Working to get some comics done for next week, since I’m finishing up most of my scripts this weekend. Otherwise, there will be more blogging. Or both! We shall see.
