Garlic Shrimp Stuffed Chicken Breasts
Chicken and Shrimp are such a natural grilling combination and these garlic shrimp stuffed chicken breasts bring them together for you in one tasty package.
This is one of the more unique stuffed chicken recipes, apart from the fact it's stuffed with shrimp, the marinade recipe is loaded with garlic, cilantro and asian chili sauce.
Reserve 1/2 cup of the marinade to drizzle over the grilled chicken and shrimp after they come off the barbecue.
Serves: 2 - 4
Prep time: 10 minutes
Direct Heat: 400F - 450F
Note: for best results marinate 4 hours up to overnight
Stir well to combine all of the ingredients.
Reserve 1/2 cup of this sauce to drizzle over the stuffed breasts when they're cooked.
Try to keep the size uniform.
Place the flattned breasts in a resealable plastic bag and pour in the marinade.
Carefully distribute the marinade in the bag so all the meat is evenly covered.
Place the bag in a shallow dish to prevent leakage and refrigerate 4 hours up to overnight.
Place 6 or 7 peeled cooked shrimp on one half of each breast.
Fold the other half of the breast over the shrimp and tie it up in several places to hold the shrimp inside the chicken.
Once the grills reached this cooking range place the stuffed breasts on the grill and close the lid.
After 6 or 7 minutes check the chicken and make sure it's browning up nicely underneath.
If you need to loosen the chicken from the grates use a long pronged BBQ fork to slip between the grates under the breasts and carefully begin prying it up.
Flip the chicken and continue cooking another 7 or 8 minutes or until fully cooked.
Watch they don't burn.
Once cooked, remove them from the grill and spoon or drizzle the reserved sauce over each piece.
