- Salt and pepper each breast, then mound 1/3 c stuffing on each.
- Pull the skin back over the stuffing and secure with toothpicks.
- Place in roasting pan and drizzle with 1 T olive oil over the the top.
- Roast until skin is golden brown, about 35 minutes.
This was good, but perhaps a little too rich for my taste. I made this for Valentine's Dinner for my dh and I. I used boneless skinless breasts and rolled the stuffing into the center, securing it with toothpicks. Otherwise I made no changes. I would make this again, but would sub in chic broth for the wine, or perhaps half broth/half wine. I also think I would lightly roll the chicken breasts in an egg wash and bread crumbs, brown them slightly and then bake. Yummy! Thanks for a great recipe.
