      Couldn't get the chicken to flatten as directed. I think it would be easier to just cut the side of the breast and stuff with ingredients. Seal with a toothpick, and coat as directed. Good taste thou.

      This really was as easy as advertised, though my cook time to get the internal temperature to 165 was quite a bit longer. When I flatten chicken breasts, I put them into a gallon ziploc, left unsealed, and whack away. The plastic is stronger than saran, and I seem to tear the meat less frequently. To reheat leftovers, I microwaved for just a minute, and then broiled to get the crumbs crusty again. Next time, I think I'll look for a way to add a bit more flavor, maybe with pricier cured meat or smoked aged cheese.

      So good!! I used thighs instead of breasts and as another reviewer suggested, drizzled butter over top before baking. Wonderful. Served with steamed broccoli and wild rice. My family gave this recipe 10 stars. Thanks for posting!
