California Apricot Stuffed Chicken


California Apricot Stuffed Chicken


Quantity Ingredients
2 tbsp butter, melted
1 green onion, chopped
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 cup stuffing mix
2 whole chicken breasts, boned, skin on
4 fresh California apricots, halved and pitted (about 1/2 lb.)
1/2 cup apricot jam
1 tbsp cider vinegar


Combine butter, onions, 1/4 teaspoon ginger and stuffing mix. Place chicken skin down and pound with mallet to flatten somewhat. Spoon 1/2 stuffing mixture in a strip along center of each breast. Place apricot halves on top of stuffing. Wrap chicken around, enclosing filling inside. Tie each chicken roll with a string every two inches. Barbecue on rack about 5 1/2 inches above medium-hot coals for 15 minutes, turning once or twice. Mix apricot jam, vinegar and remaining 1/4 teaspoon ginger. Brush apricot mixture over chicken rolls, continue cooking 5 to 10 minutes longer or until done.
