Publisher Photo
Once the stuffed chicken breasts are browned in a skillet, cooking them in microwave gets them done quickly. Be sure to check each piece of chicken--particularly those in the center of the baking dish--to be sure that each of them is cooked through.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 27, 2013

"Loved the flavors. The chicken was very moist. I used fresh spinach baby leaves that I steamed for a few minutes until they had wilted. I also baked the chicken in the oven at 350 degrees until the chicken was cooked. I served it over brown rice I will definitely make this again."

"Already made this a few times. Comes out great every time. Very tasty. I actually omit the flour b/c I wanted a more grilled chicken exterior. Still comes out fantastic."
