Cranberry-Gorgonzola Stuffed Chicken

6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 oz. each)

1 cup (4 oz.) crumbled Gorgonzola cheese

½ cup dried cranberries

2/3 cup chopped walnuts

1/3 cup packed fresh parsley sprigs

2/3 cup dry bread crumbs

½ tsp. salt

½ tsp. pepper

2 eggs

1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard

Flatten chicken to ¼ inch thickness.  In a small bowl, combine cheese and cranberries.  Spoon ¼ cup cheese mixture down the center of each chicken breast.  Roll up and secure with toothpicks.

Place walnuts and parsley in a food processor, cover and process until ground.  Transfer to a shallow bowl; stir in the bread crumbs, salt and pepper.  In another shallow bowl, combine eggs and mustard.  Place flour in a third shallow bowl.  Coat chicken with flour, then dip in egg mixture and coat with walnut mixture.

Place seam side down in a greased 15×10 inch baking pan.  Bake at 350 F. for 35-40 minutes or until a thermometer reads 170 F.  Discard toothpicks.      6 servings
