    2                    Chicken breasts -- skin and
                         - bones removed
                         Salt and pepper
    2                    Eggs
    1       tb           Butter -- softened
      1/4   c            Heavy cream
      1/4   c            Hazelnuts -- skins removed,
                         - and chopped
    2       c            Chicken stock
 
   In a food processor place the chicken breasts, salt, and pepper.  Pur‚e
   them until a smooth consistency is achieved.  Add the eggs one at a time
   and blend them in well.  Add the butter and blend it in.  With the food
   processor still running, slowly add the heavy cream so that it is mixed in
   well.
   
   In a medium bowl place the pur‚ed chicken mixture.  Add the hazelnuts and
   mix them in.  Place the mousse in the refrigerator so that it chills.
   
   Remove the chilled mousse and, using 2 spoons, form it into 12 egg-shaped
   quenelles.
   
   Place the chicken stock in a medium saucepan and heat it on medium high
   until it almost reaches a boil.  Place the quenelles in the stock and cook
   them for 3 minutes.  Turn them once during the cooking process.
