Happy Holiday season! Do you have lots of parties planned? Are you hosting? Troy and I are hosting Christmas Day and we are super excited to have everyone over. I wanted to make a holiday entree that is super impressive but easy enough to make. This Pear and Blue Cheese Stuffed Chicken is sure to impress guests and can be enjoyed year-round.

Everyone knows that pears and blue cheese go together so well which is why I wanted to make this pear and blue cheese stuffed chicken to share. It is full of flavor and has a creamy Dijon sauce that goes over the stuffed chicken breast which is so delicious. You could actually call this a sheet pan dinner because everything is cooked in the oven and is done at about the same time. I roasted some potatoes and vegetables with the chicken to make it a complete meal.

With the weather being cold, I have mostly retired the grill for the season and have turned on the stove and oven. We swapped sauteed chicken and baked chicken recipes for grilled ones. I am excited about this because that means that I can stuff the chicken! I love stuffed chicken recipes because I think that they are impressive but are actually so easy to make!

My husband especially went crazy for these! He thought that they were so fancy, full of flavor and moist. I was shocked because he is not crazy about fruit on savory foods but loved these. My kids enjoyed the meal as well. The flavor combination of everything went together so well.

I love cooking with pears because not only are they super tasty but they are also packed with nutrition. Did you know that pears are one of the highest fiber fruits? One medium pear has about 6 grams of fiber and is rich in vitamin C. Some ways that we love eating pears are: sliced on peanut butter toast, to add sweetness to homemade cranberry sauce, in seasonal salads and on a cheese board. Try some pears in your next dish soon!

December is National Pear Month and this is the perfect recipe to celebrate with. My dad grows his own pears and we have been blessed to be snacking on fresh pears from his trees from about September to January of each year. I have a whole drawer full in my fridge right now of fresh pears.
