Waldorf Chicken Bundles

I love Waldorf Chicken Salads… the combination of apple, walnuts, balsamic… so delicious!  I didn’t feel like making a salad for dinner because I have been eating salad for lunch, so I made Waldorf Chicken Bundles instead.  All the ingredients of one of my favorite salads in a dinner time meal!

Waldorf Chicken Bundles

Pieces:

  1. 2-3 chicken breasts
  2. one half of a green apple, cut into small pieces, with the skin on
  3. 1 celery stalk, cut into thin slices
  4. one half cup crumbled goat cheese
  5. one cup balsamic vinegar
  6. one quarter cup finely chopped walnuts
  7. pinch of salt and pepper

 

 

Process:

  1. Slice the green apple and celery into small pieces.
  2. Take each chicken breast and make a small slice lengthwise, not going through the entire breast.  Cut it open so it looks like a pita pocket.
  3. Stuff each chicken with the green apple, celery, and goat cheese.  Sprinkle salt and pepper over the top of each chicken breast.
  4. In a baking pan, bake the chicken at 375 degrees about 30 minutes, until chicken is cooked through.
  5. When the chicken is almost done, reduce the balsamic.  Pour the balsamic into a small pan, heat on medium high heat.  It will boil down to half and make a syrup.  Don’t let it sit as a syrup in the pan, make sure you make the syrup when the chicken is just about ready.
  6. When the chicken is cooked, pour the balsamic syrup over each chicken breast, sprinkle walnuts on top, and serve hot!

Balsamic Chicken Kebabs

Just like everyone else this time of year, I had a Christmas party to go to in the few final days of December.  I wanted to make something festive for the season, as well as a finger food that I could eat.  So, I made Balsamic Chicken Kebabs… easy, flavorful, and quick.  I skewered them with artichoke hearts and roasted red pepper, to incorporate the colors of the season… but chicken kebabs have so much potential for any time of year… just change up the vegetables.

Balsamic Chicken Kebabs

Pieces:

  1. 2 pounds chicken tenderloins, cut into bite sized pieces
  2. 1 jar roasted red peppers, cut into bite sized pieces
  3. 4 small jars artichoke hearts
  4. 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  5. one half cup brown sugar
  6. 3 tbsp. dijon mustard
  7. 2 tbsp. smoked paprika
  8. salt and pepper to taste
  9. 20 wooden skewers, soaked in water for at least an hour.

Process:

  1. Marinate the bite sized chicken pieces in the balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, dijon mustard, paprika, salt and pepper, for at least 2-3 hours.
  2. On the skewers, thread artichoke hearts, roasted red pepper pieces, and marinated chicken bites in an alternating pattern.
  3. Bake on a cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
  4. Serve hot, with an extra drizzle of balsamic vinegar on top.
