    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    If you have large enough chicken breasts you can slit a hole in the side and stuff instead of pounding the breasts thin, also alfredo sauce may be used in place of marinara. You can prepare the cheese mixture, roll up into the chicken breasts and place into the baking dish, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate up to 24 hours in advance, or just prepare the cheese mixture a day ahead

      Pretty easy to make and tasty too, albeit a little messy. My chicken was a mess---couldn't really get mine to roll right, but it tasted good anyway! I used this b/c I had a 1/2 cup of alfredo sauce to use up and wasn't quite sure it'd be enough for 2 for dinner. I had to make do with what I had on hand, so sorry I used cottage cheese instead of ricotta--sure that would be even more tasty--and scaled down for 2 servings. Wilted some fresh spinach in the microwave. Was nice to be able to assemble ahead of time, then just stick in the oven to cook while I'm putting my son down to sleep! I served with a side of pasta (using it to mop up some of the sauce).

      Using marinara sauce, I tried this recipe in the crockpot rather than baking in the oven as the recipe called for...It adapted nicely...thanks for sharing!
