6oz. Stuffing your Choice (my favorite is Cornbread Mmmm..)
1 Cup Water
Cooking Spray

First Heat your oven to 400°F.  Tear out sections of aluminum foil (enough to wrap each chicken breast in) and spray with cooking spray.  In a mixing bowl place the package of stuffing and mix in the 1 cup of water.  Spoon about 1/4 the stuffing in the center of the aluminum foil and lay your clean (and thawed) chicken breast on top of the stuffing pile.  Add about 1/4 cupc of cheese (or as much as you like), and a strip of bacon (torn in pieces) and 1/4 cup of ranch dressing drizzled on each.  Next you’re going to place about a 1/2 cup of veggies on top of your chicken. Wrap your chicken and place it on a cookie or baking pan, continue the steps until all the chickens are done.  Next pop that bad boy into the oven and bake for 30 minutes.

One of the great things about this recipe is portion size, you can make enough for one, two or a houseful of friends and family.  You can also freeze the left overs for another day, just thaw and cook 😉

Barilla Tortellini

While your chicken is baking in the oven, follow the instructions on the bag of Tortellini.  I definitely added some olive oil and parmigiana cheese and it tasted fantastic!  I have to admit though I went a little heavy handed on the parmigiana cheese but Tan and the girls loved it so I guess it wasn’t too bad 😉  Now go and get your chicken on!  And please don’t forget to stop by and let me know how you did.  Oh and if you have any tasty recipes you’d like share give me a holler and i’ll be sure to give it a try!
