  • 2 tablespoons mozzarella cheese (grated)

    This was amazing! I added extra cheese and bread crumbs to the top. I had a lot of stuffing so it spilled out some, but was still delicious. It made the chicken juicy and added extra flavor. I had it for lunch the next day as left overs, after microwaving it it was a bit rubbery so I'd say this is a dish that needs to be eaten the first night, not great for leftovers.

    Loved by the family! Instead of stuffing the breasts I used thin sliced breasts and spread the pesto mix on the top of them, and then topped with the parm flour mix.
