    pattikay in L.A.'s Note:

    From a Treasury of Great Recipes, by Vincent and Mary Price. This is also good with about 1/2 cup of chopped spinach mixed in with the chicken. I used manicotti for this - I'm sure other types of stuffable pasta would work as well. This works fine making the whole recipe in a large baking dish/pan.

      This is really easy to prepare,and the end result is just delicious.I used cannelloni that required no pre-cooking,as it's easier to stuff.I also sprinkled my chicken with a little olive oil and Italian seasoning as I grilled it.I made one large dish rather than individual ones. I had some friends come for supper,and we all ate seconds.Everyone loved it.Thanks Pattikay,I'll be making this again!

      Made as directed but also used manicotti. Entire family loved this. I would like to try this with spinach next time - these are wonderful and pretty easy to make. Thanks for a keeper!! 1-2-3 tag

      Really delicious and a great way to use up leftover roast chicken. I will definitely make this again! The only changes I made were: manicotti instead of cannelloni (I needed 6 manicotti for two people) and I used tomato purée instead of tomato sauce, because I happened to have an opened can of it in the fridge. I also only made a 1/2 recipe for the two of us and found that the manicotti would fit in our largest oval au gratin pan.
