Going to try something different...

Thought I'd try something different tonight. I'm going to pound out boneless chicken breasts and stuff them with ricotta, spinach, etc like manicotti, except no noodles. Then I'll put them in a baking dish, ladle on some spaghetti sauce, and bake. Will cook a little pasta to go with.

What do you all think? Any suggestions?

Sounds fantastic and just the thing I need to try with DH who has to cut back on pasta. Thanks for the idea, he's not loving the spaghetti squash.

Definitely a meal I would like to serve!

May I sugest roll it in some flour and lightly sear it before baking. And yes add a little bit of wine, the kind you like the most, into baking dish. Sounds yum.

That's a good idea, Charlie. I'll try that next time. It's already in the oven.

Uncle Bob, Kim says he's toasting you with Captain Morgan's!

The dish turned out really well, except that I should have taken it out of the oven a little sooner. We put it in for an hour, and 45 minutes would have been long enough. It wasn't burnt...the white meat was just a little dry. The sauce made up for that, though. The juice from the chicken and melting cheese infused the jarred sauce with a delicious flavor. Looked pretty, too. Wish I'd taken a picture.
