A great combination. I used to make something very similar, except I would press the stuffing into egg shaped balls and wrap the chicken breasts around it, securing it with a toothpick. Then bake, and serve with an orange sauce. Very nice.

Sounds really good, except I never buy stuffing mixes. I suppose we could make our own stuffing?

i'm sure any stuffing would work. Probably doesn't have to be cornbread stuffing either.
