Chicken breasts are stuffed with a fresh tomato, artichoke, basil, capsicum and mozzarella combination then baked in a marinara pasta sauce.
5 Star plus. While this was cooking I was ready to write this one off. So wrong. It is a recipe that I would now use for company - it would be a great, easy meal for a shower or girl's get together since it could be cooked 3/4 way and finished before serving. Like others said, use the amt. of ingredients you like best. I did 50-50 canned diced tomato and artichokes, did add a little garlic, used less peppers (diced very small) and the spices (dried). Also used shredded mozzarella since that's what I had (I wouldn't change that). Also I changed from marinara (I didn't want a heavy sauce) and used Emeril's "Kicked Up Tomato" which was light but spicy which was a hit here! I made angel hair pasta and just spooned the light sauce juices over it and ended up slicing the chicken rolls about 1 1/2" thick which made such a beautiful presentation seeing the stuffing in the middle. I was so disappointed that I wasn't having company to see and experience this dish. A salad and some garlic bread would touch it off nicely. Maggie, thanks so much for inventing this!! THIS IS A KEEPER - AND AN INEXPENSIVE DISH! - 04 Mar 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
As written a 3.5 or 4* recipe but with a few additions, it turned out great. Actually made this as a topping for some sauteed chicken breasts. Used canned diced tomtoes, added fresh garlic, fresh mozzerella, roasted red peppers instead of fresh, balsamic vinegar and brown sugar. Left out the marinara sauce because I didn't think it was needed in the end. - 30 Jul 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
We thought this was a keeper recipe but agree with others that it needed some doctoring of the proportions. I sauted three cloves of garlic (minced) with the vegetable mixture. I also mixed feta and mozarella cheeses. I have to say the wonderful aroma while it was baking roused even the teenagers out of their rooms! What I love about this recipe is that you can play around with it and it will still be delicious. A definite "taste as you go" cooking experience. Thanks for sharing it. We will make it again! - 03 Mar 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
