Add diced pear and pineapple and continue to cook until golden brown. Add chicken stock and cook for another minute. Remove from heat and stir in Japanese breadcrumbs and sage. Adjust seasoning with a little salt and pepper.

Refrigerate until ready to use.

Rinse turkey breast and pat dry with paper towel. Along side of turkey breast, cut an incision almost through breast and 1 inch from each end or butterfly (cut breast open). Season turkey with salt and white pepper. Fill with stuffing and wrap any remaining stuffing in foil. Tie breast with butchers twine or kitchen string.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
