I could not find Fontina so I used Swiss, excellent! Will make again for sure! Rather than rolls I layered chicken, cheese mixture and topped with chicken. Works great and you get more cheese

This recipe was excellent - I did have to use cheddar instead of Fontina because I couldn't find Fontina in the UK but it still turned out great!

I can't believe this recipe has only 4 reviews! This is an *excellent* chicken recipe. How many ways can we cook chicken, right? Well this recipe is a game changer. I don't know if it's the Fontina (which I made accompanied smashed, garlic potatoes with melted Fontina on top,) or the addition of sun-dried tomatoes (or bacon!!) or what. But this chicken recipe is on our rotation as a family favourite!! Thank you!!

This was delicious!!! One of my favorite chicken dishes for sure! My father-in-law doesn't care for chicken but he loved this chicken!! A definite winner.

Loved this! Easy to make & tastes great. I used half Panko & half Italian bread crumbs only because I don't care for the Panko. Either way, this recipe is definitely a keeper.

Absolutely delicious! I didn't have Panko breadcrumbs so I used regular. The combination of flavors was amazing. This is definitely a dish to be made for company.
