Stuffed Buffalo Chicken

>What’s a great combo?

Buffalo chicken wings and blue cheese!! So good!

I’m actually not much of a wing girl. It’s the chicken on a bone thing that gets to me. But I love the flavor combo. When Buffalo Chicken dip became popular, you couldn’t go to a party or BBQ without seeing it there.

Well I decided to make stuffed chicken using that same flavor combo!


Stuffed Buffalo Chicken

  • 1 lb of skinless chicken breast
  • 1/2 bottle of buffalo chicken sauce
  • 4 oz of blue cheese
  • 10 oz of frozen spinach
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup of bread crumbs

First I marinated the chicken in the buffalo chicken sauce. Sorry for the raw chicken pic!

Then I thawed out the spinach in the microwave and squeezed out all the water. Mix it with the crumbled blue cheese, chopped garlic and salt and pepper.

Then slice the chicken sideways but be careful not to slice it all the way through. Just make a pocket. Start stuffing!

The I topped them with a sprinkling of bread crumbs and  baked the chicken in the oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

They came out great!! Not too spicy but you can still taste the buffalo sauce. The blue cheese and spinach got all gooey and delicious.

Acorn Squash and Curry Chicken

>

Today was a short run along the Oswego River. It was a kind of windy today so that was slowing me down. 3 miles in about 31 minutes.

When we returned for lunch I was starving! Usually I have a hard time waiting to eat when I’m that ravishing so I ate an apple and tried to wait. I also had some raisins and chips…it was a long wait.

My boyfriend made one of his favorite recipes.

Acorn Squash and Curry Chicken

  • 1 Acorn Squash
  • 1 onion
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 12 ounces of chicken breast
  • skim milk
  • raisins
  • curry powder
  • olive oil

First you cut the acorn squash into halves. We did thirds because it’s easier to roast.

Then we cut up the onion, red pepper and chicken and sauteed in a pan with some olive oil.

After the chicken and veggies have cooked up a bit, you add the milk, raisins and curry powder. You let it cook until the sauce thickens.

 The squash browns up beautifully in the oven. You can leave them in halves and serve the chicken curry in the “bowls” or cut it up and mix it in with the chicken.

We cuts ours up and added it all together. I added extra raisins on top of mine.

Obviously I liked it!!
