Very tasty and not difficult. I used the same amount of filling for about 1.5 lbs of boneless skinless breasts. That came with three breasts. I didn't have monterey jack so I used american cheese with the cream cheese instead with some diced green chilies in a can. I didn't need the sauce for it, it was plenty flavorful as is!

This was awesome! I love the fact that it is so low carb, but it makes me feel like I am really indulging. I love the cream cheese and monterey jack together. It's a great recipe. Thank you.

My husband and I really enjoyed this meal. He even ate it cold the next day for lunch! I found that it was important to pound the chicken as thin as possible so that the cheese mixture can creep into every bite, rather than clumping in the center.
