It was very time consuming and difficult to make; and I ended up with a kitchen covered in flour. Tip for this recipe: Brown the chicken prior to cutting and stuffing.

I tried this last nite - but cut ingredients in half ~ also using 4 chicken breasts. (Fits WeightWatchers requirements for 8 points!) It was awesome. I can't believe how moist they were. Added a...

Fantastic recipe overall! I didn't use the cheese because I thought it might overpower the dish. To keep the chicken moist, I added some olive oil to the bottom of the baking pan and covered it ...

Very good. Made a few small changes: 1)used red bell pepper instead of green 2) used chedder/jack cheese mix 3) Brushed each breast w/oilve oil and dredged in whole wheat italian seasoned bread ...

I used left over spagetti squash instead of the acorn squash and the result was fabulous. It was elegant enough to serve to guest, yet easy enough to make for a family dinner. It tasted great!...

this recipe was wonderful. I'd recommend using seam pins to hold the breasts closed while browning but other than that it was easy and totally yummmy!

My husband and I love this dish! It's easy to make, but has a gourmet taste. I used zucchini, since the acorn squash was too hard to chop!

I have made this recipe twice and it's been wonderful both times. I used zucchinni and yellow squash instead of carrots and celery. Also, changing the cheese really changes the taste. I've us...
