Apple Stuffed Chicken {Gluten-Free}

An indulgent twist on a classic recipe. This Apple Stuffed Chicken is the perfect fall addition to your dinner table. And while your guests will think you spent hours on this beautiful dish, the stuffed chicken recipe is actually very simple.


Embrace the cooler weather with this warm, comforting dish. This apple stuffed chicken uses a combination of sweet and savory flavors to give your dinner an indulgent feel.

Topped with a sweet mustard sauce, the stuffed chicken can be made ahead of time and cooked later in the day if you’re short on time. Regardless, it’s a meal you won’t want to miss!


Choosing Cheese for The Stuffed Chicken

While this recipe calls for gouda, the choice is yours. Apples and gouda pair well together for fall flavors and the sweet mustard vinaigrette on top is a wonderful contrast to the gouda.

However, if you don’t stock gouda cheese at home, any mozzarella will work in a pinch. Choose a cheese that you and your family already enjoy and work with that,  and make it your own.


What to Pair with The Apple Stuffed Chicken

This fall-flavored pairs well with just about everything but some favorites are:

  • Roasted squash and veggies
  • Candied Brussels
  • Comforting soup

One thing to keep in mind is that the type of apple you choose will affect the flavor if the dish. The more tart the apple (like a granny smith) the tarter the chicken.

Personally, we like to use traditional gala apples as they bring out the sweetness of the dish which compliments the gouda nicely.
