Tender chicken breasts are simmered with brown sugar, cider vinegar and a hint of allspice, then dressed up with packaged stuffing mix and convenient canned peaches.—Theresa Stewart, New Oxford, Pennsylvania
"Our daughter served this tender chicken rolls to us a long time ago, and we've enjoyed them often since then," comments Alcy Thorne of Los Molinos, California. A zippy cheese filling gives them special flavor while a golden coating enhances their appearance.
Filled with a flavorful mix of shrimp, mayonnaise, onions and tarragon, these golden chicken breasts are special enough to serve at a family celebration or dinner party. I round out the meal with grilled bell pepper wedges and grilled pineapple rings.
Meet the Cook: Busy as an active-duty member of the Coast Guard and the mother of a 7-year-old son, I prepare this elegant dish for guests and special occasions. The sauce is so versatile, though, I've used it on pork chops and baked potatoes, too.
