Graduating from culinary school was not as spectacular as I thought, not wanting to work in a commercial kitchen, and having little patience for snobs; I decided not to pursue the career I had studied for. But don’t cry for me, I and everyone I know eats well… Very well!

There is one show stopper recipe that I have up my sleeve, makes your stomach growl and your eyes water. My stuffed bacon wrapped chicken! Seeing as how I can only seem to consume poultry when it’s wrapped in pork, this is perfect for me! There are so many things that you can stuff it with that it makes itself anew each and every time I make it.

The most important step is to prepare the chicken breast.

Take the appropriate number of chicken breasts out and thaw them slowly in COOL water! Never and I repeat NEVER thaw meat or poultry in the microwave!!!!!

Instead of pounding out the chicken and rolling the contents of the stuffing in, I prefer to pocket slice the boneless chicken breast. This keeps the contents from melting and burning whilst it cooks and leaves a professional presentation.

Beginning at the thickest part of the breast, take your knife and make a vertical slice down the center. DO NOT GO ALL THE WAY THROUGH! Try to keep the slice no deeper than half an inch, and adjust as you make your way down so that your knife never goes completely through.

Set your knife within the vertical cut flat on the edge to make the horizontal cut. Again, DO NOT CUT ALL THE WAY THROUGH! Slice horizontally on both sides. At this point you should have a nice pocket.

Season the Chicken with Salt and White Pepper within the pocket and all over. Let stand in the fridge, covered loosely, until ready to stuff.


Mustard Havarti and Apple Stuffed Chicken Wrapped in Bacon:

Don’t freak out, apples and mustard tastes good and makes sense. Knowing how to pair tastes and not be afraid to experiment is the beginning of being a great cook. Sweet and sour always go together.

For Two Chicken Breasts:

  • Two table spoons of Yellow Mustard
  • ¼ cup Havarti cheese, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup of Granny Smith Apples, small dice
  • Four slices of Bacon (your choice if flavored, i.e. Maple, smoked etc.) Two slices for each breast

Method: Preheat oven at 350 degrees. Take your ingredients and fill pocket of the chicken breast, but do not over fill! Take a slice of bacon at a time, and starting at the top (Thickest part) of the breast, wrap the bacon around until you reach the bottom (thinnest part) It may take two slices, because you want the bacon to slightly over lap each time you go around. Set chicken in Pyrex oven pan or whatever you may have, tucking the end underneath so they don’t burn. Cook for 30 to 35 minutes. Let rest for 3 minutes, slice and serve.

Perfect Side: A great and healthy side dish to accompany this chicken is Sautéed Asparagus. It is fast and easy and pairs really well with the flavors. All you need is:

  • Fresh asparagus
  • Large pan
  • One stick of butter
  • Minced garlic, about 3 table spoons
  • One table spoon minced shallots
  • Salt and Pepper

Method: In a large pan, begin to melt your butter. You want to keep it on low heat so that your butter does not burn. When butter is fully melted, add you minced garlic and shallots until they turn transparent. Making sure you cut off the hard ends of the asparagus, add them to the pan and cover. Check them every 3 to 5 minutes while pouring the melted butter from the pan on top. Cook until soft, but not MUSHY! They should still have a bright green color, and only take about 15 minutes in cooking time.

She tap danced on The Red Skelton Hour in the 1950s, line danced with Rosemary Clooney in the movie Red Garters, and danced as well in the Judy Garland film A Star Is Born. But JoAnn Dean Killingsworth was best known as Disneyland s first Snow White.On July 17, 1955, the day Walt Disney opened the gates for a 90-minute ABC-TV special that introduced the theme park to the world, she was atop her own float on Main Street, U.S.A.Saturday, Killingsworth, a long-time Balboa Island resident living in a Brea luxury apartment for seniors, died of cancer, nephew Jay Dean said. She was 91. She went out fast, Dean said. We re really happy about that. Born JoAnn Dean in Minneapolis, Minn. on Sept. 23, 1923, Killingsworth was a professional figure skater, a dancer on Broadway and in Hollywood, appeared in 100 movies, mostly as an extra or in a dancing role, and was the co-founder of the monthly Orange County Illustrated.To the public, her big day was as a then-31-year-old dancer on a float accompanied by the Seven Dwarfs. I thought JoAnn looked like Disney s Snow White, with her dark bangs, Miriam Nelson, Disneyland s opening-day choreographer, told Orange Coast Magazine last year. She was very enthusiastic, bubbly, and always in good spirits. I knew she d do a good job. It was the only time Killingsworth played Snow White. She s done a lot, but when her friends hear about that, that goes to the top of the list, said Bruce Wilson, Killingworth s caregiver at Capriana, the Brea apartments for seniors, and a close friend. That s what they want to remember her by. She was tickled each time. The youngest of two children, Killingsworth was an avid dancer who learned to tap at the age of 6 or 7, said brother Donovan Dean: She was cute and young and a lively young girl. The family moved from Minnesota to Los Angeles in the 1930s. Killingsworth received her big break at age 15, touring in several traveling ice capades including in Sonja Henie s Hollywood Ice Revue. In Hollywood, Killingsworth appeared in such movies as State Fair (1945), Lullaby of Broadway (1951), and Rainbow over Texas (1946). During technical rehearsals for a A Star is Born (1954), she served as a stand-in, dancing and singing all of Garland s musical numbers.Killingsworth and her husband would settle in Balboa Island where they published a weekly tabloid, The Newporter, in 1959, which they converted within a year into the monthly Orange County Illustrated; she would design and illustrate the covers. It folded in 1977, after the couple divorced.She spent her later years at Capriana in Brea, playing golf and painting. I ve had a great life, she said in an interview with the Register last year.She is survived by two stepsons, Bill and Larry Killingsworth, brother Donovan Dean, and numerous nieces and nephews.Services were pending. http://www.michaelkorsbags.net.co The Sheriff聮s Office plans to continue the program next fall with Spanish Level I, Spanish Level II and Spanish Level III maintenance courses offered.
