Stuffing Stuffed Chicken Breasts

I found this recipe in a magazine. It's an easy company dish, and I can halve it to satisfy a craving for roast chicken without more leftovers than we can ever possibly eat! —Carol Mead, Los Alamos, New Mexico

    This was incredible! I used a boxed stuffing mix (done by the directions on the back), instead of the soft breadcrumbs. I also made a white sauce gravy to pour over top of it after it was served. It was absolutely delicious! I will definitely be making this one again.

    This was a tasty dish. I don't know what went wrong though but there isn't enough liquid to bread crumbs and it left me with a bowl of dry crumbs. There was about twice as much stuffing as was needed, so I think if I try this again I will use half as many bread crumbs.
