    I do like chicken with stuffing but there is only She Who Must Be Obeyed and myself so that can be a lot of food. Also, SWMBO likes to buy boneless skinless for health and girth control reasons. So, I decided to stuff my boneless skinless chicken breast and smoke it in the pellet grill.

    I started by cutting some bread into about 375 ml (1 1/2 cups) of cubes. Then I cut up 25 ml (2 tbsp) each of onion and celery.

    I put 15 ml (1 tbsp) of butter in a fry pan and heated it over medium heat.

    I sauteed the onion and celery until soft.

    I added the bread cubes, 5 ml (1 tsp) of Worcestershire sauce, 1 ml (1/4 tsp) each of dried savory, rosemary and sage. I sauteed for about 1 minute and added just enough water to moisten the breadcrumbs, about 15 ml (1 tbsp) and removed the stuffing from the heat.

    I cut a pocket in each of two breast halves.

    I put the stuffing in the pockets and pressed it in and tucked the chicken around it. Don't worry about the bread showing on the edge. It gets a nice crust while cooking.

    I sprinkled each breast with Louisiana Grills Chicken Seasoning.

    I preheated the pellet grill to 350 F with pitmaster pellets and cooked the chicken for about 25 minutes.

    I flipped the chicken and cooked for twenty minutes more. I used my instant read thermometer to make sure it had an internal temperature of over 165 F. I had a baked potato going at the same time.

    I brought it in and let it sit for a few minutes.

    We served it with coleslaw and bacon wrapped baked potatoes.

    This turned out great. The little bit of simple bread stuffing really improved the meal!

    Looks great,we like to put stuffing in there as well but add cheese. Did you like the bacon wrapped tater? I found them underwhelming.

    Thanks. I like to make slices in the potatoes, insert onion slivers and then wrap in bacon. The bacon doesn't add much taste to the potato but the fat gives the potato a better texture and carries the onion flavour through. If you are looking for bacon taste, you will be underwhelmed.

    Thanks, Ed. It would be better with the skin on but I would never get that by She Who Must Be Obeyed.
