Attractive dish with a nice flavor. I halved the amount of butter in the mushroom wine sauce and it was plenty for us; the sauce was still thickened and glossy. The cheese stuffing from the breasts combines with the sauce on the plate and makes for a very flavorful combination. The only thing I found problematic was removing the strings from the chicken rolls after cooking; they tended to get baked on. I discovered it was much easier to remove them after slicing the rolls into rounds. Thanks for posting !
