Show Off In The Kitchen - Make This Pretty Pecan Crusted Stuffed Chicken!

Hey chicken-lovers! Getting a little bored of the same old recipes? I was feeling just that way when I saw pecan crusted stuffed chicken being made on TV. It looked so delicious and seemed easy enough to make, so I gave it a try. This version is my own adaptation using ingredients that I had on hand - and it tastes GREAT! ♥
