      Absolutely loved the stuffing! The mix of herbs and spinach really made this something special, and the fact that it's healthy didn't hurt either. I totally forgot to put the oil into the stuffing, but it was plenty moist and I didn't miss it. The sauce was great as well, my only complaint was that we wanted more! This was really easy, and I wouldn't hesitate to serve it to company. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT8

      This is definately colorful & very tasty... just don't know if it's something I'd serve to company being that the stuffing turns out very green. With that aside we enjoyed the flavours in this dish. I didn't have orange zest so I used lemon pepper (only added 1/2 of what zest called for). I substituted marsala for the vermouth & sour cream/yogurt mix for the cream. I didn't have chicken with skin so I flattened breasts & folded over ends & secured with toothpick. I found I needed to thicken filling with abit more breadcrumbs. I made the mistake of combining all the sauce ingredients... to help fix it I added cornstarch & heated till thickened. Very tasty & tangy, thanks for sharing.

      When you love chicken and herbs this one comes together to make for a wow. I love the taste of tarragon but didn't have fresh so used a bit of the dried and simply used more of the chives and parsley. It was wonderful with the aroma alone worth a five! Thank you for sharing your recipe for this great tasting chicken.
