Tony Chachere's Creole Grilled Jambalaya Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Preparation Time:  30 minutes  Cooking Time:  10-15 minutes  Result: CREOLICIOUS!

Prepare Jambalaya

The cooked flavorful breakfast sausage gives extra moisture to this stuffing recipe making it the perfect stuffing for  the chicken breasts.

1 box Tony Chachere's Jambalaya Mix

1 package (16 oz) Ground Sausage (Hot or Mild)

2 cups water

1 bunch green onions, sliced (separate the white from the green)

Microwave sausage for about 5 minutes.  Separate clumps and microwave for 3 minutes more.  Prepare Jambalaya on the stove or in the microwave:  Add sausage with drippings, water and green onion bottoms.  Cook as directed on package.  Add green onion tops.

Prepare Chicken Breasts

Making a slit in the top of the chicken breasts allows for a smaller opening so that it is easier to keep the stuffing intact while grilling them.  The presentation of this dish is incredible.

6 chicken breasts, skin on or off, boneless

1 jar (17 oz) Tony Chachere's Roasted Garlic or Jalapeño Butter Injectable Marinade

Jambalaya Mix

Tony Chachere's Original or More Spice Creole Seasoning

Inject chicken breasts with 1 ounce of marinade, injecting about ½ inch apart.  With a small sharp knife cut a slice in the short end of the breast slicing through the middle of the chicken breasts, being careful not to slice through the sides.  You can use your finger and maneuver a slit throughout the breast.  With a rounded spoon (a coffee spoon or a tablespoon works well) scoop the cooled jambalaya stuffing into the slit.  Secure the end with toothpicks.  Sprinkle the outside of the breasts with Tony Chachere's Original Creole Seasoning.  Place the breasts on the grill not directly on the coals about 6 inches away from the fire.  Baste and Cover.   Cook 7-10  minutes on one side with the lid down, basting with the basting sauce.  Turn, baste the other side and cook for about 5 minutes more with lid of bbq pit down.
