I know it’s hard to fathom that someone can make stuffing from Dunkin’ Donuts but once you see the Twinkie stuffing recipe that was so popular when we posted it last year — it all falls into place.

Thanks to Dunkin’ Donuts for allowing Circle of Food to share the recipe with our readers:

 

Dunkin’ Donuts Low Fat Apple Caramel Muffin Stuffin’

Ingredients

2 Dunkin’ Donuts low fat apple caramel muffins, allowed to stale (fat chance of that) or cut into 8 pieces and toast in a 350-degree oven for 5 minutes
2 Tblsp vegetable oil*
1 medium onion cut into 1/2-inch pieces yielding approx. 1 cup
1 apple, cut into 1/2-inch pieces yielding approx. 1 1/2 cups
1/4 tsp dry thyme
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 tsp rosemary, chopped fresh
1 Tblsp parsley, chopped fresh
salt & pepper to taste

Directions: In a large 10-inch saute pan, heat 1 Tbsp vegetable oil over medium low heat. Add onions and apples and cook for 6 to 8 minutes or until onions have become translucent and begin to brown and apples have begun to soften and brown. Add the thyme. Transfer ingredients to a mixing bowl. Add the muffin pieces, chicken broth, rosemary and  parsley. Season with salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly and let stand for approx 5 minutes.

Pan Roasted Chicken Breast

Ingredients:

4 to 6, 6 to 7 oz boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut a pocket for stuffing
2 Tblsp cider vinegar
1 cup chicken broth
flour for dusting
salt & pepper to taste
seasonal vegetables++ of your choice

Directions: Preheat oven to 350-degrees. Measure 1/3-cup of above stuffing and stuff into the pocket of each chicken breast. Repeat until all breasts are stuffed. Season the exterior of the breasts with salt & pepper, then lightly dust with flour.

Preheat a large, ovenproof saute pan over medium heat, add 1 Tblsp vegetable oil* (presumably left over from the muffin stuffing). Add chicken and saute for 3 to 4 minutes. Turn chicken over, add seasonal vegetables and saute for 2 more minutes. Add the chicken broth and transfer to oven for approx 15 minutes until vegetables are tender and chicken has reached an internal temperature of 160-degrees F.

++Seasonal vegetables may include carrots and zucchini. You may need to blanche them prior to sauteeing.

If you’re serving the stuffed chicken breasts to guests, ask them to guess the mystery ingredient. I bet they can’t!
