Green eggs, blue eggs, pink eggs, brown eggs, and white eggs all have the same nutritional makeup and taste. The egg color is really a choice and preference. Are you looking to raise heritage breeds of chickens like your grandparents? Perhaps they raised Rhode Island Red chickens and had an egg carton full of medium brown egg shells. If they raised white egg layers, chances are they were raising the White Leghorns, although the Blue Andalusian also lays a nice white egg. Lighter tan eggs often come from Buff Orpingtons, Barred Rock, or other Rocks. The large Cochin breeds lay a light, almost pink egg shell.

This grilled recipe is an easy one for Stuffed Grilled Chicken Breasts.
I start with a chicken breasts and use a pocket. Then I place in sun dried tomatoes, wilted spinach and thick-sliced mozzarella cheese. Top it with Killer Hog's AP Seasoning and secure with skewers.
For seasoning on the outside of the grilled chicken breasts, I used Killer Hogs AP Seasoning and then Killer Hogs The BBQ Rub.
For this cook I used my Big Green Egg - and created a two-zone fire with all my hot coals on one side and a void on the other. I placed my grilled chicken breasts on the cool side of the grate and allowed them to cook for 20-30 minutes.
Once the grilled chicken breast reaches 135 internal, it's time to move them to the hot side directly over the coals. I set my timer for 4 minutes and flip the chicken breast over until they reach 165 internal.
When the stuffed grilled chicken breast is ready, remove it and allow it to cool for 5-10 minutes. Just remember to remove the skewers before you dive in!
