Apple Stuffed Chicken Breast

This is a delicious autumn meal with crisp apples, pan roasted chicken, and a savory white wine gravy! Try serving it with mashed potatoes or rice pilaf and pairing it with a dry white wine, such as, Tavignano “Villa Torre” Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore 2012 which we featured in our Premier Series last month.
