We absolutely loved this recipe. We are big fans of Mediterranean flavours and enjoy making stuffed chicken breasts for a nice meal once in awhile and this recipe did not disappoint. The filling mixture was quick & easy to put together. I changed up the cooking technique abit; I browned in the skillet for a few minutes and then put in the oven to finish cooking. Chicken was moist & tasty, thanks for sharing.
