After the fire, my heart broke for Michelle and her family. Bringing over this casserole was the one thing I could think of to help her out in a tiny way and let her know I was thinking of her and her family.—Lin Krankel, Oxford, Michigan
I learned to make Cazuela while we were living in Chile for a few months. We grow extra butternut squash in our garden just for this favorite recipe. Besides gardening, my retired husband and I also enjoy birdwatching, volunteer work and visiting our five children and six grandchildren.
A mixture of spinach, spices and three kinds of cheese tucked into these chicken breasts makes them taste extra special. "They bake to a beautiful golden brown, so they look lovely on the plate, too," shares Barbara Eitemiller of Churchville, Maryland.
I was looking for a recipe that was nutritious and would adequately feed my two teenage sons and husband. I'm a busy teacher, and time is of the essence. This tasty recipe is easily prepared for an evening meal.

A friend served this chicken when we were over for dinner, and we enjoyed it so much I asked for the recipe. There are many chicken farms in this area, so I'm always on the lookout for new chicken recipes.
THIS RECIPE has been in our family for 40 years! My four kids loved this dish growing up, and it's still their number one request when they come to dinner.
My husband's pet name for this is "great wads of dough"...but he eats every bit on his plate.

My siblings and I couldn't wait to sit down to supper when Mom was making this delicious chicken. The cornmeal in the coating gives each juicy golden piece a wonderful crunch.
