Recipe Comments & Reviews

I had a hard time stuffing chicken so I flaten chicken between wax paper with my meat hammer then just rolled ham and cheese fastened with toothpick then added topping.
I always keep these in my freezer for easy dinners. So easy
to prepare and bake. Lots easier than traditional
preparation.
