The Amazing Stuffed Chicken Breasts


I have bookmarked this recipe almost 4 months ago from 365 Days of Baking but was contemplating if I should really try making it as she only rated the recipe 2 over 4.

Running out of new dinner ideas so I stopped thinking and went ahead buying all the ingredients - my hubby actually encouraged as he seems to love all the ingredients in the recipe. The result?? It was amazing and I am so glad! And the secret to making it great was the chicken broth that she missed out in the recipe! So moist and so flavourful ! Thanks 365 Days of Baking  for the recipe from Day 117 - Stuffed Chicken Breasts!



Recipe adapted from 365 Days of Baking with minor adjustments

  1. Chicken breast could be a bit dry, it's a clever way to use broth to maintain the moisture. It's a great gourmet recipe that doesn't take long to make. Love it!
