340g pitted and coarsely chopped Northwest fresh sweet cherries
57g chopped onion
1 teaspoon chopped fresh sage
1/2 teaspoon each salt and chopped fresh thyme
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (4 to 6 oz. each)
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1-1/2 teaspoons garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
Combine cherries, onion, sage, salt, and thyme; mix well. Cut a pocket on the thicker side of the chicken breast; sprinkle lightly with salt if desired. Stuff 1/4 of cherry mixture into the pocket; close opening with metal skewers or wooden picks. Combine oil, vinegar, garlic salt, and pepper; mix well. Marinate stuffed chicken breasts 1/2 hour in refrigerator. Broil or grill chicken breasts, brushing with marinade, until fully cooked and juices run clear when sliced.
Oven Method: Brown stuffed chicken in oven-safe skillet on both sides. Bake at 190°c 12 to 15 minutes or until juices run clear.
