Hunger Games underdogs, Rue and Katniss, develop an important alliance while sharing a meal of groosling. So this recipe could really cover more than one scene from the Hunger Games, that is, if we decide to substitute chicken for groosing, a fictional game hen from District 12. Another important scene is when Katniss first tries chicken, a forbidden delicacy in the starving ghettos of District 12.


  • 2 Skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 Medium apples, chopped
  • 3 tablespoon dried currants, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Italian-style dried bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley, for garnish


Step 1:

  • Peel, core, and chop apples. Combine with currants and breadcrumbs in bowl and set aside.

Step 2:

  • Cut a pocket horizontally in each chicken breast. Stuff each chicken breast with apple and currant mixture.

Step 3:

  • Heat oil in skillet over medium heat. Brown stuffed chicken breasts. Add 1/4 cup water. Cover. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until chicken is cooked thoroughly.

Step 5:
