  2. Oh My Gosh! You have outdone yourself with these stuffed chicken breasts. I love the ricotta cheese and spinach filling. I am pinning this and will be making it in a couple weeks. Did you use your own tomato sauce or purchased? Not sure it would make a difference since the chicken is the star, just wondering.

    Thanks for linking up to the In and Out of the Kitchen link party. I am happy you stopped by!

  3. Great recipe! Only difficulty I had was the recipe doesn't specify what size bag of spinach to buy. I bought a 8 OZ bag to use half in the stuffing the ricotta to spinach did not look like the same portions as the picture. I highly suggest getting a small bag than I did! Otherwise, delicious!

  4. Was excited for this until I saw the splenda... Sugar would actually be better for you! May be good but they definitely aren't healthy. Maybe use coconut sugar if you're looking for something low glycemic and mostly healthy.
