  • This is the best chicken I have ever eaten in my life! It always turns out perfect and I feed it to guests and they ALWAYS want seconds!

  • We loved this recipe. Even my kids loved it which means alot if they eat it! I can't wait to make it for friends.

  • good "stuff ".

  • My wife and I really enjoyed this. I know this is an Applebees copy (I've never had it) but while I was eating it, I thought about how good this could be with something more than cheese in the middle. Ham, and swiss instead of Monterey Jack, Leave out the Cumin and you've got a really good Cordon Bleu. Or perhaps mimic Uno's Chicken Spinaccoli. Wrap the chicken around Spinich, Brocolli and Cheese, slice it and server it over Penne Pasta with Pesto (or Alfredo). What makes this one even better is that you can make several servering or versions in one prep freeze it for a quick dinner during a busy work week.

  • I made this recipe for my Husband and I. He is one of the worlds pickiest eaters and he loved it! So did I! I will make this again often. This was easy to make and a nice change to chicken. We love chicken and eat a lot of it, but were running out of good recipes until I came along this one. Thanks for an awesome easy meal!!
