This is one of our favorite meals. You can leave the sugar out too, it really doesn't make that big of a difference in the taste and the onions will carmelize either way. :)

Excellent dish..the only thing was my chicken must have been too thick because it took 45 minutes to cook on the stovetop, although it turned out perfect! will definately make it again!

I have been making this for a long time on my own. I use reduced fat goat cheese, mix it with chopped basil, sundried tomatoes, olive oil, salt and pepper. coat the pounded chicken breasts with panko bread crumbs (dip chicken in some 1% milk so it will adhear) put the mixture in the middle, roll. (no toothpicks necessary). I just bake it for about 45 minutes. Easy and I love dishes that i can toss in the oven and forget.

This is outstanding...however the cooking time is far less than stated. I use boneless skinless chicken breat, sear in pan and cook at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes. In my family a "company dish" means that you could serve it to company when they come for dinner. This is defintely a company dish.

OMG I absolutely loved this recipe! I am pregnant but still watching my weight to make sure I don't gain too much and this recipe is perfect for that. Super healthy, super tasty, and filling!!! I made it with some broccoli and feel so satified which is so important while pregnant.

I made a double yield of this with some changes. It was awesome. I used extra virgin olive oil spray. I substituted no salt added 1% milk fat cottage cheese for the goat cheese. I added 2 cups of fresh spinach that I wilted while sauteing the onion and garlic. I pounded the chicken breasts flat to 1/2" thickness and put the stuffing on half of the flattened breast and wrapped the breast over the stuffing. (The other commenter was right, no toothpicks needed.) I baked at 350F for 30 minutes which came out perfectly. What I am happiest about was that the difference these changes made is the per serving calories went from 266 to 145.8. :-D

I cooked this for my husband and myself. I kind of followed the original, but baked it like Dina4 for 45 minutes - and added the water/oil mixture and 3 carrots (sliced). Definitely a repeater! Thanks for putting this one out there! (Will try MrsTofu's suggestions next time).

My whole family loved this. I followed the suggestion of other people and baked it,375 for 35 min. Then I turned on the broiler at the end to brown the top. I also pounded the chicken flat and rolled the filling inside. Some spots were a little thin so I placed some spinach leaves between the chicken and filling to avoid it melting out. Worked beautifully.

This was awesome! Hubs loved it as much as I did. I didn't stuff the chix since my cutlets were fairly thing but rather topped it with the mixture and popped it in the oven for 15 min after I'd already browned the chix. Very moist and tasty!!
