    unlike Jen, I am a chef by profession. I changed it up slightly: Sauteed the garlic and onions to golden, then added the rest - added some chopped mushrooms. Pounded out the chicken breast very thin, put in the stuffing and rolled it up. Put the rolls in a baking dish and baked until done. Yum! - 7/10/07

    I didn't put in the tomatoes because everyone in my family despises them. I baked it at 350 for 30 min. Mixed about 1/2 cup of parmesan with spinach, since I had no mozzarella. - 3/19/08

    I've been looking for new ways to do chicken lately, and this hit the spot. I did it the way that CandyBill suggested, by flattening the chicken and rolling it up. Came out beautifully! - 11/2/07

    I found this recipe to be very bland and I added cheese. My bf really enjoyed it though. I'll try again but add some spices to the mix or possibly use a light marinade for the chicken to up the flavor. Good base to start with! - 3/31/11

    This was amazing! Everything I used was fresh. I cut out the tomatoes but used mushrooms instead and add asiago and provolone cheese to the top since I didn't stuff them. It taste just as good if not better than something you get at an expensive restaurant. Everyone loved it. Will make very often! - 8/20/10

    This recipe is going into the regular rotation by unanimous vote. I had tenders instead of breasts and so I just sauteed the veggies & then threw the gorgeous "filling" over the top of the chicken and baked the rest of the way. Was even better for lunch today. - 5/4/09

    This is alot like a recipe I use to make before I found this one. With the garlic and spinach it is so good! What I do is, while the chicken is uncooked I did add small amount shredded sharp cheddar on top the filling, rolled them up sprinkled with some crushed wheat ritz crackers and baked them.:) - 3/15/07

  • I'm curious why the picture never matches the recipe? I don't see tomatoes. I don't see where it says to roll it or how to do that. For those of us that aren't "cooks" it would be nice to have a picture of the actual dish. I'm such a bad cook, I need the picture as guidance. Thank you! - 8/26/14

  • I had a hard time butterflying the chicken, so I just spooned the mixture over the flattened chicken breasts. Also used fresh spinach and a can of stewed tomatoes as it is too late in the season for fresh ones. Very tasty recipe and a good way to sneak in some veggies! - 10/26/10
