On Sunday, I helped a friend harvest the last apples dangling from the trees in his orchard (read: I mostly lounged in the sun and drank rye whiskey). On Tuesday, I raked up what remained of the fallen leaves in my yard. And last night, I lit the inaugural fire in the fireplace of my new home. These are all seemingly small events. But collectively they signal that Fall is beginning to slip through my fingers.
As the air temperature continues to drop and the available daylight hours fade away, my cravings for comfort foods rich with bold flavors goes into overdrive. But what I don’t crave are endless hours spent standing in front of the stove. Or a mile high pile of dishes left in my sink at the end of the day. Nope. I’ll definitely pass on doing the dishes.
If you have similar notions, than this recipe for Apple Cranberry Chutney, Spinach and Mozzarella Stuffed Chicken Breasts is for you. It’s a dish that is impressive enough for entertaining guests, but easy enough for casual weeknight dinners at home. The whole recipe can be made in a single pan with only a handful of ingredients. And the flavors have a familiar, cozy quality that will remind you of the Holidays. I think it’s the epitome of the phrase “rustic elegance”.
The star of this dish is definitely the Apple Cranberry Chutney. Both sweet and tart, this savory chutney from Stonewall Kitchen packs a real punch. It’s the perfect condiment to pair with roast chicken, turkey or pork. It’s a great addition to a cheese platter. And it also makes an awesome sandwich spread as well. You won’t run out of ways to use this versatile chutney! Which is why I suggest keeping a couple bottles on hand at all times. Especially with Holiday entertaining season fast approaching.
Stonewall Kitchen is a New England based company that I’m extremely proud to be able to work with. I’ve been using their high quality, specialty food products in my kitchen for years (some of my other favorites are here, here and here). And I often give their jams out as gifts around the Holidays (hint: hostess gifts ideas!).
I’m lucky to have one of Stonewall Kitchen’s retail stores within walking distance of my house. I frequent it often and I always make sure to arrive hungry because FREE SAMPLES! Seriously. Everything they make is so delectable. I have a hard time stopping myself.
