Cranberry Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken

Cranberry Goat Cheese Stuffed Chicken

There’s basically nothing I love more than grilling.  When I was notified that I must remove the grill from my balcony last year by my buildings HOA I almost cried (actually I might have cried… a little!)

I may or may not have snuck it back out there for the last 6 months, but luckily if that ever happens again I’m covered! I am now the proud owner of an indoor T-fal OptiGrill!

T-fal OptiGrill

The Mercedes of indoor grilling, the OptiGrill, will cook a steak to your exact temperature liking, grill a piece of frozen chicken or perfectly press a panini in no time!

It’s the only indoor grill to use Precision Grilling Technology, automatic sensors that detect the quantity, temperature and thickness of your items and grill them perfectly to your liking.

It’s easy to clean (the plates on the grill are easily removed and dishwasher safe! Woo hoo!) and most importantly, easy to use!

I was able to prepare this stuffed chicken breast recipe from beginning to on-the-table in 15 minutes!

Close and let the OptiGrill do it’s thing! Seriously, it’s that easy! It dings when the chicken is perfectly cooked though!

The great thing about using the OptiGrill for Stuffed Chicken is that I didn’t have to flip the chicken, potentially losing some of its delicious filling!

The chicken was juicy, flavorful and cooked in less than 10 minutes!

I first made this dish for a sunday night family dinner where I served it with Strawberry Balsamic Bruschetta and Turkey Kale Soup. It was so easy and delicious that I actually made it again the next day for lunch, placed it on a bed of spinach and drizzled with a little balsamic vinaigrette… so yummy!
