  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 6 oz (170 g) cheese softened
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lb (450 g) cremini mushrooms sliced
  • 1 lb (450 g) green bean trimmed and halved
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 1/2 oz brandy, cognac or sherry
  • 1 cup shredded Canadian Gruyere cheese

Method

With sharp knife held horizontally, cut each chicken breast in half almost but not all the way through; open like book. Spread one side of each breast with one-sixth each of the cream cheese, thyme and cayenne pepper. Fold uncovered side over; secure edge with skewer or toothpick. Sprinkle with half each of the salt and pepper.

In large skillet, heat 1 tbsp of the oil over medium-high heat; brown chicken, in batches and turning once. Remove to plate.

In same skillet, heat remaining oil over medium-high heat; cook mushrooms, garlic and remaining salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, until liquid is released from mushrooms, about 3 minutes.

Stir in green beans; cook, stirring often, until tender-crisp and no liquid remains, about 15 minutes. Stir in brandy; cook, stirring, until no liquid remains. Transfer to greased 13- x 9-inch (3 L) baking dish. Top with chicken and any juices; sprinkle with Gruyere.

Bake in 375?F (190?C) oven until chicken is no longer pink inside and cheese is melted and bubbly, 10 to 15 minutes.
