Orange Date Hummus Stuffed Chicken Breast

DSCN6609

Since oranges and dates are both holiday flavors, this is a great dish to make for a Christmas Eve  or a Christmas dinner party. It is simple yet tasty and pairs well with traditional winter sides like sweet potatoes, green beans, brussel sprouts, or a lightly dressed bed of greens.

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

  • 2 tablespoons Orange Date Hummus

  • 1 Tablespoon reduced-fat cream cheese

  • Salt and Pepper to taste

  • Extra Virgin Olive oil

  • Fresh rosemary sprig

  • 1 orange, sliced

Preheat oven to 350. In a small bowl, mix the orange date hummus and cream cheese. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Butterfly the two chicken breasts and season with salt and pepper. Place butterflied breasts into pan and sear 2 minutes per side. Transfer to an 8 x 8 baking dish. Divide the orange date hummus mixture evenly. Place half the mixture onto a breast and fold the top of the breast over. Repeat with the other chicken breast. Top each chicken with orange slices and fresh rosemary sprig. Bake at 3:50 for approximately 20 minutes or until internal temperature is 160. Allow to rest 3 to 5 minutes before cutting and serving.
