Things I didn't have: cheddar and bread crumbs. I substituted havarti and cracker meal for those two ingredients. I also thought it was necessary to use toothpicks to keep the cheese from melting out of the chicken.
I was disappointed that the chicken didn't get nice and brown on the outside. Maybe if I had cooked it longer? Or I had used breadcrumbs? Or if I fried it instead?
Regardless of the lack of browning, this chicken was delicious! I'll admit I was hesitant about the cream cheese, but it makes such a nice creamy filling for the chicken. This is definitely an nice change from your usual chicken dinner. Try it!
Come back in a few days to read about the tasty Autumnal brussel sprout side dish I made along side this chicken.
