Ingredients
  

  • 4-6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 4-6 slices Swiss cheese
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • kosher salt
  • fresh cracked pepper
  • 1 cup herbed stuffing, preferably whole wheat crushed
  • 4 Tbs unsalted butter divided

Instructions
 

  • Heat oven to 350F.
  • In a medium, nonstick skillet, add the cream and 1 tablespoon of butter. Simmer over medium-low to low heat until volume is reduced by half (~10 minutes; see Tips above).
  • Add the wine and Dijon. Whisk until smooth. Bring back to a simmer until thickened once more (~5 minutes). Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Put breasts in a baking dish. Season with salt and pepper. Lay a slice of cheese on each. Pour the cream sauce over the chicken.
  • Combine the butter and stuffing. Layer this mixture over chicken.
  • Bake at 350F for 35-40 minutes or until a thermometer inserted in the thickest part of breast reads 160F. Remove from the oven and let chicken rest 5 minutes (internal temperature will go up further to 165F which is perfect doneness). Remove from the oven and rest 5 mintues. Serve.
