Story behind the recipe:

Classy, fancy, and delicious... obviously. The Chef came up with this one in inspiration of the Cosmic Crisp Apple contest that the blog entered into. He loves stuffed chicken and it's one of his go-to recipes, but this time he wanted something different than the norm.

It all started with Brandy... What goes well with brandy? Apples and cheese. However, Allergy Girl can't have apples so the best alternative was Asian Pears. Now if you can have apples and want them, by all means do the apple version. If you're looking for something more unique, or you're feeling adventurous, or you can't have apples, then definitely try the Asian Pear version.

This recipe required something more rich than basic cheddar or mozzarella cheese, and Miyokos farmhouse wheel cheese was the perfect fit. Strong and rich in flavor, but still complimented each of the ingredients in this delux recipe. If you can't find this cheese near you, then just use the strongest and riches cheese alternative you can find; preferably one with a smokey flavor.
