I really liked this and so did my husband. Next time I don't think I will make as much filling because it definitely spilled out into the pan. But it might also be my lack of experience with stuffing meat. I really liked the tomato salad too. I think that was the perfect pairing for this dinner. I'll be making this again.
can you bake in the oven with this recipe?
This was really flavorful - I would definitely make it again. The only change I made was that I butterflied the chicken, cooked on one side, flipped and topped each piece with a portion of the filling. I never trust stuffing chicken like this - I always imagine it all falling out into the pan, so I decided not to risk it. The tomato salad was really good, too - I thought it was going to need a little something extra, but it didn't.
This is delicious. The flavors work very well together. I, however, prefer to flatten the chicken breasts with a heavy pan and then use two pieces to make a kind of sandwich. I feel it cooks faster and you don't have to cut out a pocket.. that always ends up being too messy for me.
I made a few changes that have helped make this recipe one of my favorites. First, I have to double the stuffing to fill 3 large chicken breasts in our family. I also added chopped Spanish olives and a portion of a can of stewed tomatoes, chopped. Quantities can be based on your likings.
