“Purchase the largest and thickest chicken breast you can find to make this recipe. Plan ahead the cream cheese mixture needs to chill for 2 hours before using or up to overnight. I added some Old Bay seasoning to the cream cheese mixture when I made these. This recipe can be cut in half to make 4 breasts. If desired you can sauté/cook the stuffed breasts completely in the frypan and omit the oven. Prep time includes the chilling time.”
