Sun-Dried Stuffed Chicken Breast (Plus a Contest)

sundried-stuffed-chicken-breastThis week’s recipe is pulled straight from the pages of The Paleo Primer: A Jump-Start Guide to Losing Body Fat and Living Primally!, written by British health and fitness consultants Keris Marsden and Matt Whitmore. These folks, who run a popular fitness and wellness center called Fitter London, have produced a book that is half “primer” and half incredibly creative recipes. The primer section distills the major concepts of primal/paleo/ancestral health living into clever and memorable short passages, spiced up by hilarious cartoon drawings. If you haven’t picked up a copy yet, I highly recommend it!

This recipe is as easy as it is delicious. Butterflied chicken is stuffed with a mixture of sun-dried tomatoes, olives and basil, then wrapped with prosciutto before baking to provide a little crunch and a lot of extra flavor. You’ll find this recipe simple enough to whip up for a quick dinner, yet impressive enough for company.

Sun-Dried Stuffed Chicken Breast


Servings: 2

Time in the Kitchen: 30 minutes


  • 2 large boneless chicken breasts
  • 4 sun-dried tomatoes
  • 4 green olives, sliced
  • 10–20 fresh basil leaves
  • 6 slices of prosciutto


Preheat oven to 350 ºF.

Slice the raw chicken breast in half and place two sun-dried tomatoes, two sliced olives, and three to four torn basil leaves in between each breast. Wrap each breast with three slices of prosciutto to seal the filling in place, then place on a baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes.

Serve with fresh spinach salad and grilled tomatoes. Enjoy!

The Prizes:

newbonebrothsampler__32308Wise Choice Market – Bone broth is not only good for the soul, but it’s good for the gut. It can be tricky to find a quality ready-made bone broth that you can have shipped right to your door, but Wise Choice Market has got you covered!

Slow-simmered under the direction of a professional chef, this delicious, organic, home-style bone broth is prepared with nutrient-dense ingredients and ready when you need it. As close to homemade broth as you’ll get without hours of labor, they hand craft their organic chicken and beef bone broths in small batches.

Just like homemade chicken broth, their chicken bone broth is made by simmering the bones and feet from healthy pastured organic chickens for 24 hours. The organic beef broth is made from grass fed beef bones, and simmers for 48 hours. The long, low-heat cook time guarantees you maximum health benefits and a complex, delightfully flavored bone broth.

One winner will get 6 24 oz packages of organic, pastured chicken bone broth, and 6 packs of organic, grass-fed beef bone broth.

combo_1024x1024Paleo Scavenger Granola – In June of last year, Brittany Chibe left the corporate world to start Paleo Scavenger with the mission to share her tasty, paleo granola with the world!

While training for a half-marathon, she found it difficult to find snacks that fit within the parameters of the paleo diet. It was as if she were on a constant scavenger hunt (hence the clever company name) at the grocery store searching for paleo-friendly snacks, so she started whipping up some of her own. After getting some serious props from family, friends and other paleo foodies, she decided there was a market to package and sell it… thus a company was born!

The winner will receive 10 assorted bags of Brittany’s Certified Paleo granola. Total Value: $100.

BONUS: Use promo code DAILYAPPLE for 15% off your order until February 2nd.
