DH and I enjoyed this stuffed chicken breast recipe last night. It was easy to prep, easy to make, and came together quickly. I really liked the taste of the madeira wine sauce over the chicken, however, I thought the chicken itself was missing a little something I couldnt put my finger on (good, just missing a little something). I wonder if using smoked gouda next time might enhance the chicken? The sauce needed no modification; it was great as is. Thanks for posting.
