Tchaikovsky Chicken

The idea for this mixture came to slave while at 

work today and could hardly get home to put it to

 the test for You! Blending a sweet cranberry with a

 sharp red onion stuffing really makes this dish.

Baking this crusty chicken without deep frying will

 also help your resolve for healthier living this 

year. (as well as impressing the hell out of your

 dinner guests)


2lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts

½ cup chopped red onion

½ cup dried cranberries

4 oz low fat cream cheese softened

2tbs oil

1 cup corn flakes, crushed fine

½ cup lower fat mayonnaise

¼ tsp garlic powder

cooking spray

Place a rack in the center of the oven and

 preheat to 400 degrees.
Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and 

place a cooking rack on it. Spray lightly.

Chop up the red onion, crush the cornflakes.

Heat oil in skillet over medium heat. Stir in

 the red onion and saute for 4 minutes. Add 

the cranberries stirring occasionally to keep 

from sticking. Let them cook together for

 another 4 minutes.

Drain into paper towels in a small bowl.

In a larger bowl cut up the cream cheese and

 blend in the onion-cranberry mixture while

 still hot. Mix thoroughly. 

Lay out the sprayed cooking rack, a bowl 

with the mayonnaise, and a bowl with

 cornflakes:(optional is adding some 

Parmesan cheese to the crushed flakes). Mix 

the garlic powder into the mayonnaise.

Cut a pocket into each breast, not all the way

 through but most of the way. Stuff with a

tbs of the Cheese/cranberry mixture, secure

with 2 toothpicks and set aside till all are 


Now with a pastry brush, “paint” the

 underside of the breast with the

 mayonnaise and place that “mayo” side 

down into the  corn flakes. Then do the top 

the same way.

 When coated place on cooking rack. Make

 sure they do not touch.

Let these bake for 30 minutes or until a 

thermometer reads 160 degrees.

Remove from oven and let rest for

minutes before serving. Be sure to take out

 the toothpicks!

Slave fixed a simple side dish of sugar snap 

peas to complete this healthy “oven fried”

 chicken dinner. The combination of sharp 

red  onion with sweetness of the cranberries

 and background of cream cheese is an 

unexpected joy!

For our music how about a cross between 

classical and disco?



So happy to serve my Master Indy

To satisfy and restore.
To nourish, support and maintain.
To gratify, spoil, comfort and please,
to nurture, assist, and sustain
..I cook!
