"This was amazing! I followed the recipe exactly with delicious results!"
"I pounded the chicken flat and then stuffed it with the mixture, and it turned out incredible!"
"This was a very tasty dish. Easy to prepare and not too much time involved. Am adding it to my recipe book, very glad I found it in the Dec/Jan magazine. I also enjoyed the sweet sour green beans that accompanied it."
"I'm never good at stuffy chicken but I used halves and rolled instead fastening with a tootpick. Didn't look as pretty but sure tasted fantastic!!"
