Walnut Stuffed Chicken

h2Chef’s Note/h2
pThis very simple dish has been on my menu for decades. It just happens to work for a diabetes-compatible diet. The ONLY change was using Parmesan cheese in the stuffing instead of breading. If you are as big a fan of blue cheese as I am, add two ounces of it crumbled into the stuffing./p
pSome folks don’t like walnuts. Perfect, try pecans or pistachio nuts./p
