    Very Very good, at first I thought it read italian breadcrumbs, so I put two tablespoons of them in. I think I will leave it with breadcrumbs for next time, it held everything together nicely. I to had remaining stuffing so I set it aside and at about 15 minutes remaining I put it on top.

    I prepared this for a banquet of 55 people the other night. It was a BIG HIT everyone loved it.Very easy to do . I stuffed the chicken with uncooked brocolli and cheese and let it cook on 350 for 45 mintues. The thickess part reach 185. It was perfect.Served over rice with melted cheese on top.

    I've made this a few times now and everytime it turned out quite well. Last night however I decided because there is so much left over filling I would put the leftover filling around the chicken pieces to cook and added a can of cheddar cheese soup. It was delicious! Served it over cooked egg noodles...big hit and I will definitely make it that way again!
