Stuffed Chicken Recipe

Written with love, by Sarah-Elizabeth Labelle

One of the most amazing things about cooking is that you can take an old, drab dish, throw some fantastic ingredients at it, and it becomes something totally new. Grandma’s chicken dinner doesn’t have to be the unseasoned, bland chicken with a side of tasteless potatoes and broccoli. It’s surprising what a few spices and a fun cheese can really do to (forgive the pun) spice up a dish.

A lot of women I know love to play around with different flavors, and add something new into a dish. I’ve found that whether it’s in a great sauce or a new herb, changing it up can bring back the pleasure of cooking and the joy of eating. 

This recipe calls for your oven mitts and creativity as there are so many ways to change it up and keep things interesting. No more boring chicken! Toss out those over boiled potatoes and  you’re surely going to impress your man tonight with a delicious meal...and maybe even impress yourself a little along the way!
