Apple Stuffed Chicken Breast
This is a great dish for autumn. Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, and/or Winesap apples may be used. Stop by Bob's Markets in Mason, Belpre, and Gallipolis in the coming weeks as we start to get in a wide selection of Fall apples.

- 1 tablespoon water
- 1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
