Easy to make and turned out to be very yummy! We used our homemade tomato sauce and it kicked everything up to the next level. I weill be making this again!

Made this a 'meal 4 two' cutting recipe in half, used sweet red pepper. came together quick and easy - will definitely make again.

MY REVIEW

We enjoyed this. The chicken breasts I used were too thick so I had to bake them longer. Next time will cut them in half. Recommend adding the cheese after the first 10 minutes of baking time. I added garlic & Italian seasoning (in addition to that which is in the sauce) and mushrooms. Yummy. I might try ricotta instead of cream cheese.

MY REVIEW

Delicious recipe! Since I had just made a batch of homemade spaghetti sauce and had an abundance of green peppers from our garden, this recipe appeared at the perfect time for me. I doubled the recipe since I had really large chicken breasts that I cut in half to make thinner portions. I really liked that it was diabetic friendly for my husband, too!
