Crab & Asiago Stuffed Chicken Breast recipe 

Chicken and Crab really go well together.  Add some Asiago cheese and diced Jalapenos to the mix and you've got some very tasty grilled stuffed chicken breasts. 

Try to choose nice plump boneless skinless chicken breasts as you'll be pounding them out flat before rolling the stuffing mixture in them.

A little French salad dressing is added to the stuffing to keep it nice and moist.

After turning these on the grill you'll brush the tops with a smooth creamy Honey-Dijon basting sauce that puts a nice crispy glaze on them.

Very lightly oil each chicken breast and place it on the preheated, oiled grill and close the lid.

After 5 minutes wiggle each piece to loosen it from the grill and move each piece around the grill without flipping them.

After about 15 - 20 minutes check under each piece, if grilling up nicely then go ahead and flip them over.

Lightly brush each piece with some of the honey-dijon glaze.

Once the internal temperature of the chicken meat (not the stuffing) reaches 165F then remove from the grill, cover and let sit 5 minutes before serving.
