Chicken can sometime be flavorless, dry, or both. This can simply be because it’s overcooked, or because 1) you’re not cooking the right recipes and 2) it’s a very lean meat to start with, with little fat to add flavor and keep it moist. By stuffing chicken, you can fix these two problems. You’ll also notice a common theme throughout these recipes and that’s that most of them incorporate pork in some way. Since pork is generally much more fatty, it’s a great way to keep the chicken tender, moist and full of flavor. Don’t worry, you’ll also get your veggie fix too!

An easy dish to throw together when time is of the essence. The recipe includes a simple salsa, but if you’ve got some hanging out in the fridge that needs to be used up, that works just as well.
This recipe is great to prepare with kids, or perfect for the kids at heart. It’s a fun way to get the whole family involved in dinner prep and the finished product is oh-so-good.
Pork and chicken happens to be a great combination and when wrapped in bacon, well let’s just say it doesn’t get much better than that! It can be super easy to overcook chicken, but with the meat stuffing and the bacon wrap, you’ll find this makes for very tender chicken.
Stuffing a whole chicken can be just as tasty as stuffing the breast. We love this recipe for it’s simplicity. It’s a sure favorite when our herbs are fresh from the garden.
