  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper to taste. Slit open on the side for stuffing; set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the ricotta, spinach, garlic, eggs and 3/4 of the cheese. Mix well and stuff each breast with 1/4 of the mixture; secure with toothpicks and place stuffed breasts in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Pour sauce over all and sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 45 to 60 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.

This was very yummy. First as with all chicken-I marinated in buttermilk all day(1cup milk 1 TBS vinegar or lemon juice if no buttermilk) for that extra moistness. For the cheese stuffing I ad...

This recipe was amazing! It is now one of my families favorites! I did find that it was easier to pound out my chicken thin and wrap it around the filling as opposed to cutting a slit in the c...

This turned out incredible! I had some heavy cream I wanted to finish so I made "Alfredo Sauce" (Rebecca Swift) from this site instead of the spaghetti sauce. From reading the reviews, I knew th...

Good recipe.. I made a few changes to suit my own taste. I added more garlic to the cheese mixture. I used an Italian blend shredded cheese I also and 1/4 cup of freshly grated parmasean cheese...

This was quite tasty. I'm giving it 4 stars because it really did make too much stuffing (even though I halfed the recipe!), and I had to "add" to it so the stuffing wasn't so bland... but it w...

This was great! Make sure you get the chopped spinach - My grocery store only carried whole frozen spinach, so it was a little stemmy. Instead of butterflying my chicken I pounded it flat and ...
