Apple Glazed Chicken Bundles


1. Melt butter in small skillet. Add green onions. Cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes until tender. Place bread cubes and dried cranberries in medium size bowl. Stir in onion mixture.
2. Heat combined ⅓ cup apple juice and ⅓ cup water to boiling. Stir into bread cube mixture until all cubes are moistened. Stir in 2 tablespoons Equal®, ¼ teaspoon salt and ⅛ teaspoon pepper until combined.
3. Lay chicken breasts on flat surface. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste, if desired. Place ½ cup stuffing mixture in center of each chicken breast. Fold in sides of chicken to form a "bundle". Secure each with wooden picks.
4. Place chicken bundles in shallow sprayed baking pan. Bake in preheated 350°F oven 35 to 40 minutes or until chicken and stuffing reach 160°F and chicken juices are clear when chicken is pierced with a fork.
5. Meanwhile, combine 1½ cups apple juice, ½ cup water, cornstarch and lemon juice in a small saucepan. Stir until smooth. Bring to boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Boil and stir until thickened. Remove from heat. Stir in 2 tablespoons Equal®. Add salt and pepper to taste, if desired.
6. Spoon glaze over baked chicken. Serve warm.
