This was a good recipe. It was raining outside so I just baked them in the oven for 30 minutes. I'll make this again. I would add garlic and parmasean to the spinach mix next time.
Amazing! I added 1/2 teaspoon of paprika instead of the sweet peppers. I also used red onions. After I prepared this recipe that called for six chicken breasts- I used 3 large chicken breasts and this amount of filling worked just fine. Covered these in the oven for about 20 minutes and then about 20 more minutes uncovered. Thank you for sharing. My whole family loved this!!
Good recipe! I baked the chicken in the oven because I live in an apartment complex where grills aren't allowed. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly, with one exception: more mozzarella, probably around 1 full cup. (I don't worry about fat grams.) It was delicious! -- Dan Robinson
