2 cups boiling water

1 tablespoon Land O Lakes® Butter

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.
