Baked Chicken Supreme
Strips of Monterey Jack cheese tucked inside chicken make this entree extra special. Crushed Caesar croutons are a unique addition to the coating. —Marlene Nutter, Thedford, Nebraska

This chicken is excellent, it's like a flavorful homemade chicken kiev. I made the recipe following the directions with a difference of halfing it and using a bit more wine then it called for, 1/3 cup instead of 1/4.
