    Ninna's Note:

    This is an adopted recipe originally posted by MeanChef. I have left it unchanged it is just as he originally posted it. When I discovered this wonderful recipe online, I hadn’t yet discovered Zaar. It was months later I found Recipezaar and nearly a year later when I realized our favourite stuffed chicken breasts, that we often serve at dinner parties, was in fact a Zaar recipe. When I reviewed this in April ’04 I mentioned that I often like to serve it with fresh tomato and basil sauce.

      Lost my previous stuffed chicken ricotta recipe which was very similar, but this one used Mozerella--yum! All around just a stellar dish, and for people that need a quick dish that looks elegant & doesn't take much time...look no more. A real fail safe great recipe. I use more garlic....

      Finally finding the long school days abated (bless you, spring break!), I looked for a recipe that would make my husband happy. I looked no further than this. This came together pretty quickly, and cooked in about 40 minutes to absolute perfection. I also added a bit more garlic than called for, and I served it with the Basque Potatoes. Not too bad for a Monday night meal. Thanks, MC...

      Loved this! Rather than bothering to debone the chicken, I merely stuffed the mixture under the skin, coated the skin with some butter that I had flavoured with garlic and fresh rosemary, marjoram and thyme, and roasted the breasts at 450F for 35 to 40 minutes. The skin was crisp, and the meat moist...great for a weeknight meal or for company.
