Shrimp-Stuffed Chicken Breasts Recipe

Shrimp-Stuffed Chicken Breasts Recipe

Filled with a flavorful mix of shrimp, mayonnaise, onions and tarragon, these golden chicken breasts are special enough to serve at a family celebration or dinner party. I round out the meal with grilled bell pepper wedges and grilled pineapple rings.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Grill: 15 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
  • 2-1/2 cups frozen cooked salad shrimp, thawed
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon dried tarragon
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Liquid Smoke, optional
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
