Apple Stuffed Chicken Breast*

2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1/2 cup chopped apple
2 tablespoons shredded low-fat Cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon finely crushed pecans (or the nut of your choice)

1/4 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon water
1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley, for garnish

Combine apple, cheese, and crushed pecans. Set aside.

Flatten chicken breasts between sheets of waxed paper to 1/4 inch thickness. Divide apple mixture between chicken breasts, and roll up each breast. Secure with toothpicks.

Melt Smart Balance in a 7 inch skillet over medium heat. Brown stuffed chicken breasts. Add wine and 1/4 cup water. Cover. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink.
