This recipe was very tasty. I prepared it for only two portions but did make a couple of adjustments. I stayed with the full 2 tsps. of softened butter and the 1 tsp. of lemon zest. The lemon zest really added an interesting flair to the stuffing. Thanks for sharing this recipe.It's a keeper!

Did not use the butter or breadcrumbs. Served with a feta cream sauce over the top. Delish!!!

Excellant chicken!! Very tasty and easy to do. Loved the spinach and sun dried tomato mix, it really complimented the chicken. I did it in a shallow dish but couldn't seem to get it to brown the way I thought it should, it didn't look wonderful as it should have, but that could be my fault the way I rolled them, in any case it made no difference to the taste which was wonderful, thanks for sharing a good one!
