    I had to make some tweaks on this simply because I didn't have everything on hand that I needed. Used queso fresco instead of feta (because I hate feta), left out the bacon and nuts due to dietary issues and instead of the parm/Italian seasoning on the meat itself I used 21 seasoning salute from trader joes. I covered the breasts for the first 20 or so minutes of cooking and then uncovered. OMG!!!! they were so delicious!!!! I will definitely be making this one again--may put bacon in next time, and usually you would never hear me say this, but in this case--bacon wasn't necessary! thank you for an amazing recipe and the pinnacle of my anniversary dinner. :)

    This was THE best stuffed chicken breast I have EVER had! Hands down. I wouldn't change a thing to this recipe. I have made this for all of my friends and family. Never had a complaint. Thank you to the wonderful author of this recipe ;) Gotta try this with garlic mashed potatoes. Always a party pleaser. Cheers!

    Delicious! Added sliced mushrooms and left out the pine nuts & tomato. My husband LOVED it! My tip: Use extra spinach so the leftover "stuffing" can be eaten as a yummy dip!
