What an excellent recipe! Made it for the first time last night for myself and my beau. Did change a few things: First off, I used 3 chicken breasts instead of four (soaked in buttermilk beforehand as suggested by others) and reduced the other ingredients. I used approx. 5 oz. of fresh spinach, a few white mushrooms, and 4 large garlic cloves minced, all sauteed in the bacon grease after half-cooking the bacon in a skillet. For cheeses, I used parmesan, asiago, monterey jack, mozzarella, herbed feta, and a little mild cheddar. For seasoning, I added a little seasoning salt to the buttermilk soak; beyond that, I salted the mixture and added black pepper, fresh basil, and a little red pepper. Added about a heaping tbsp. of sour cream, and that was enough. Wrapped up as directed with two slices of bacon per pounded breast, fastened with 4 toothpicks each. The cooking time was perfect (375 degrees for 35 minutes, plus a couple minutes of broiling).
The chicken turned out moist and delicious and was served with a side of steamed asparagus, french bread and wine. :) Will make again!
