    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    The chicken is stuffed with creamy ricotta, spinach, and garlic and then gently cooked in a rich tomato sauce. This is a really easy chicken dish that looks impressive and tastes outstanding. This is a suitable dish to make ahead of time. You could even add Parmesan Cheese and Artichoke Slices to the stuffing for an even tastier Chicken!
