Crab Louie Stuffed Chicken #SundaySupper

Crab Louie also known as Crab Louis is one of my favorite crab dishes. Traditional Crab Louis is made with Pacific Northwest Dungeness Crab. I use lump crabmeat and sometimes even special.
Chicken Stuffed Crab Louie
I usually make this as a salad and stuff a tomato with it. This week’s Sunday Supper invited us to stuff, roll and wrap our dinner contribution. The stuffed tomato version is a great lunch or brunch meal. I needed to kick it up a notch for dinner. Stuffed chicken sounded like a natural choice. Moist lump crabmeat in a slightly sweet and spicy sauce, cradled in a chicken breast and baked.
It turned out to be a great choice!
Fill breasts and tuck ends underneath, Add oil to baking dish. Place breasts stuffed side down. Season with salt, pepper and paprika. Sprinkle with onions.

White Chocolate and Carrot Cake Peeps Nests #DessertChallenge

peep family

Welcome to the April White Chocolate and Peeps Dessert Challenge sponsored by Sheryl from The Lady Behind the Curtain .

Lady Behind the Curtain Dessert Challenge
Each month we receive a food pairing to create amazing desserts. April’s pairing is white chocolate and Peeps! Peeps are sugar glazed marshmallow pieces. The free-formed shape resembles a baby chick.
My Peep’s nests are made with drizzled white chocolate, carrot cake, toasted coconut and of course, Peeps.
Start your nests by lining cupcake tins and drizzling melted white chocolate on the sides and bottom.

Refrigerated overnight.
Bake your carrot cake the night before too if you like. For these nests I cut each cupcake in half.
