I won my company's Chicken Cook-Off with this recipe. I cooked the chicken in an oven at 350 for 30 minutes instead of using a microwave.
I was really excited about this recipe, but by the time dinner was over I was a little disappointed. Due to allergies I used crushed corn flakes instead of bread crumbs, and I couldn't bring myself to microwave this, so I threw it in the oven. I don't know if that's what the problem was or not, but it seemed really dry to me, and a little on the bland side when it came to the spices. It wasn't one of our favorites, but all in all it wasn't that bad.
TERRIFIC! We could not believe how GREAT this recipe was! Instead of the microwave I used the oven: 350 for 45 minutes (don't put them too close together or the sides won't cook). I toasted some rice bread (wheat allergy) and put it in the cuisinart to make crumbs - they were the best part! Kind of a chunky coarse crumb topping instead of super fine crumbs (had about 1 cup total). Poured all the left over crumb mixture over chicken before cooking. They held a lot of the butter (used about 1/4 cup vs 1T) and got crunchy-toasty in the oven! SUPER RECIPE! Amazing flavor! Smelled fantastic while cooking! Presentation is company-worthy or nice for an everyday meal! Don't leave out any of the spices - the combination of them all is what makes it! Thank you for a new favorite! We'll be talking about this one for a long time!
I wasn't sure what to expect as its cooked in the microwave. I loved this meal and plan on adding it to my regular rotation. I only made one change: used mozzarella instead of swiss. Its a little messy to roll them all up but its worth it.
I have to give this 5 stars because I was so happy with the butter/bread crumb/microwave idea! I changed the stuffing though, used fresh mozzarella, roma tomatoes, and fresh basil. I cooked for 7 minutes 30 seconds and it was moist and perfect! Thanks for the recipe!
This recipe is GREAT!! I was a little skeptical about cooking it in the microwave, but it was fabulous! This is one that I will make over and over again!!!
I, too, was skeptical about this dish because it's cooked in the microwave, but it is delicious! It's almost too good to be true because it's so quick and easy. I was looking for a great dinner dish that wouldn't heat up my kitchen during the summer months, and this one fits the bill. I will be making it again and again, all year 'round.
very good I did cook mine in the oven at 350 for 35 minutes though instead of the microwave
