    MackinacBride's Note:

    I was searching the internet 2 valentines days ago for a romantic, not too foo-fooey recipe and found this (don't remember what site). This is now my BH's version of comfort food, whenever he feels down he asks me to make "that fancy chicken". I like to serve it with garlic mashed potatoes.

      Wow!! The kids all loved it. The high fat content discouraged me at first, so I cut down the crm. cheese, took out the egg yolks and used margarine. This was very flavorful. Thanks!!

      This was my first experience stuffing chicken and it was SO easy! I will make this again, most def! My husband LOVED this, my brother was very impressed and I was pleased as punch to serve it and eat it! I pounded the chicken breasts flat with a meat mallet and discovered a creative outlet for stress! I also used imitation crabmeat- the results were fabulous!
