Apricot Chestnut Stuffed Chicken

I hope everyone had a delicious weekend filled with lots of fun food, family and friends.  I was planning to go to my yoga class on Friday when I had this sudden urge to get to my kitchen fast to start chopping, cooking, baking and mixing before my all my thoughts fell out of my brain.

THANK GOODNESS I FOLLOWED MY INTUITION!  Sometimes there things that can wait and other things need to be brought to fruition immediately and this recipe is one of them.


  • 1/2 cup homemade cashew cheese (follow the recipe on the website and add some fresh dill… maybe a tablespoon to the recipe.)
  • 3 lbs of  boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 3 cloves of finely chopped garlic
  • handful of finely chopped parsley
  • handful of finely chopped dill
  • 2 fist fulls of dried apricots chopped small(no additives)
  • 15 chopped roasted chestnuts (organic)
  • sprinkle of Trader Joe’s Everyday Seasoning
  • Tablespoon of Coconut Aminos to drizzle over chicken
  • optional: sprinkle a little lemon on top of the chicken breast before going into oven



This is the pre roasted package of chestnuts I used. They are delicious. I found them at Plum Market.

Chop up your herbs, dried fruit and chestnuts.

Put your chopped goodies into a bowl with your 1/2 cup of cashew cheese and mix.



Make slits into your chicken breasts and stuff your bowl of goodness into the chicken breasts.  You will have exactly enough.


You will want to put a little olive oil in the bottom of the baking dish.  Sprinkle the Every day seasoning on top and some coconut aminos as well.  Bake on 375 for about 30-35 mins.


Fresh from the oven.

This was soooo delicious!  You will be part of the clean plate club for sure!
