This is a wonderful recipe... It is one I got from the Kraft website. I bet I have made it 15 times. It gets rave reviews from company. We like it better the nexr day all the flavors really meld together.
My whole family and guests agreed that this is five stars and I'm adding to my favorites. I actualy received this one off of a recipe exchange with friends. How is it possible that I havenâ€™t made this before? This was so super easy and looked beautiful. This is a good one because it uses stuff I typically have on hand. I buy the generic stuffing mix in bulk because it is so much cheaper. So, I just eyeballed the amount until it was just moistened. I didnâ€™t have Italian diced tomatoes. So, I threw in about a tablespoon of Italian seasoning and used fresh Basil from my herb garden. We served this with cheesy broccoli and pasta salad for 2 other couples and they thought it looked gourmet. Ha! I liked this dish because I was able to prepare everything earlier in the day and put the covered dish in the fridge. The cooking time of 40 minutes was accurate. My prep time was about 15-20 minutes, and that was pounding out 8 chicken breasts.
Me and my boyfriend tried this last night and really enjoyed it. We are kind of picky eaters so we used tomato paste in place of the canned tomatoes. I also didn't have any basil, but it tasted great without it. This is a wonderful dish and I will definitely be making it again. Thanks for posting the recipe!
