"This is a cinch to make and tastes great too! I serve them with a side of pasta with either butter, garlic and Parmesan cheese, or with sauce, and green salad. My Italian food loving family goes crazy when I make this, so we have it often, and I wanted to share it with you. You can easily double the recipe to feed a larger crowd. Garlic bread is great served with it, fresh out of the oven."

Love this easy but so delicious chicken. My family gave it thumbs up so I am giving it 5 stars all the way! Served it with sauteed spinach and a crisp salad and rolls for a perfect dinner that will be repeated!

We really liked these, made as directed except I had extra spinach mixture leftover which I threw into the casserole with the marinara sauce. Served with pasta for a wonderful dinner. Thanks for sharing!

They came together quickly after I made the cheese filling. The time is spot on and they tasted extra moist, and the filling oozed out as I cut them. I made them with some Parmesan noodles for a side. They went over big with my kids which is a big plus, and my husband took seconds! Good thing I made extra!
