Wood Fired Stuffed Chicken (with Blue Cheese & Spinach)

July 15, 2012

First of all I want to be clear….I’m not a pyro but fire, well, fire is just really awesome. It can do pretty much everything, you can use it to create (like yummy chicken) or you know to destroy (which is awful). It is just one of those things that can be awesome and horrible all at once.

Anyway, on to the yummy:

Butterfly the chicken breast (or buy it that way). Stuff with some blue cheese and spinach and fold back together, you could tie it but I never do. Season your chicken well (poultry seasoning, garlic and thyme). Marinate your chicken for a couple hours in Italian dressing (I skipped this step this time and missed it so make sure you do that). Sear on both sides (keeps it moist).  Grill until it is at a proper temperature. I usually take it off about 5 or 7 degrees from done because it does continue to cook after you remove it from the heat, this will keep it from really drying out. Enjoy!
