This was fabulous. It had a wonderful Mediterranean taste. The bell pepper, feta, kalamata olives and basil was the perfect flavor combination for stuffing the chicken breasts. I read in the instructions to preheat the broiler, and apparently ignored the rest of the cooking directions. Because I ended up broiling the chicken (instead of finishing it off on the grill). Despite that mistake though, this came out fabulous and was a big hit with my family. I served it with Sauteed Zucchini. Thank you for sharing your recipe, Ck2plz. Made for ZWT #9 (Greece).
