    Really good recipe. Even better with feta cheese! - 7/4/11

    I used Part skim ricotta, and I also added a thin slice of part skim mozzarella before wrapping.

    Very Good
    Very delicious and easy to prepare dish... I will definitely make this again. The only comment I have to make is that if you buy whole chicken breast just make sure to cut off the cutlet before you pound it out to make it easier to roll. - 2/10/08
