      This made a lovely dinner for us with some salad & Baked potatoes. I breaded my chicken for that extra special touch and the stuffing was lovely, even toddler DD ate it, thanks for posting!

      This turned out great! I wish there was more instruction however as to how to roll up the chicken since some like me don't have much experience in the matter. I tried a few different ways and finally found one that worked ok but it wasn't great... Definately no pretty effect through the middle lol. I also wasn't sure how thin I should pound them out to since it didn't really say. I opted not to make the spinach but followed the rest of the cooking instructions up to it. Although it ended up spilling out in places it still had plenty inside to flavor the chicken and it was a pleasant flavor. We left out the tomatoes only because neither of us likes them. Once I get better at stuffing chicken breasts I may try this one again!

      My family loved this recipe, even my 3 year old. Very simple and easy to make. I used a little less basil, and served with potatoes instead of spinach.
