Week 7: Kathleen: Stuffed Chicken Breasts

I also made some delicious Stuffed Chicken this week from here, I hadn’t used a recipe from this site, but I will now after trying this one! I didn’t take a picture so I used the one from the blog. I halved the recipe, and it still produced leftovers that were delicious heated up. I also made some gluten free bread crumbs from my bread and nixed the basil since I didn’t have any. This came out very well and will definitely be repeated. Served with a salad.

Instructions
