Italian Stuffed Chicken Breast

"I got this recipe from a book that was at the check-out line at the grocery store. I leaf through them while waiting and if there are more than four good-looking recipes, I buy it. If not, I leave it. They can get expensive. Anyway, this is a tasty one. Serve it with my Recipe #227176 and it makes a great meal."

  1. This is truly a 5 * chicken dish. I used the lemon pasta you suggested,a fabulous blend of flavors.My Family said,"This could make you a Zaar Star".Thanks for the super recipe.Rose
  2. Husband said "restaurant quality" and my two kids loved it! I had a little pesto sauce so I brushed a little on the chicken before topping with the cheese and spinach. I also used a can of diced tomatoes with garlic and onion instead of sauce. I served with the lemon pasta and it was also very good.
