This was such an incredible meal.  Very filling. 
I served the chicken with a salad and garlic bread.
You could also serve buttered noodles or spaghetti with extra tomato sauce...

  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!
