This was a really tasty dish! I used the crabmeat for half of the chicken breasts (my girls won't eat it so the un-crabby ones were for them). I forgot to dust the breasts with flour and ended up doing that after I'd already sprinkled with paprika and drizzled with butter. I don't know if that made a difference in the sauce but it didn't matter to us because the flavor was there in full force. The chicken was really tender and not dried out. Thanks Stephanie for a great recipe!
INCREDIBLE!!!! Looks drop dead gorgeous plated and tastes even better! This is high praise as I am extremely "wrap" and "rolled" challanged! ( I can NEVER get it right!) I used the crabmeat option and FORGOT to baste!!!! Didn't matter as I was moist and tender anyway! Prep took me longer than described (See wrap challanged!), but is it worth it! I might add minced red bell pepper to the stuffing mixture next time, but this is spectacular just as it is!!
