      I thought this was wonderful. I did not make it with the smashed potatoes; I served this with kumara zucchini fritters. I made as is, except for 2 changes, added cornflour to the sauce as I found it a little to thin. I also wrapped about 5 slices of pancetta around each breast, was worried about the stuffing melting out. I will say, probably my own fault, I was only making this for 2 and made stuffing ingredients as stated so I did over stuff my breasts. I will say add one more egg and it does make a wonderful mini quiche, if like me you have left over stuffing. Another winner Chia thanks very much

      A very nice dish, but the stuffing was very eggy. I will admit I steamed and sliced the potatoes, and used a tablespoon of butter to finish the sauce, which I thought needed something more.
