Italian Stuffed Caprese Chicken #Recipe

The tastemakers at Sunday Supper Movement who have created some wonderful Mothers Days recipes this week and my Italian stuffed chicken is a wonderful part of the collection. It tastes as fabulous as it looks. Do you like the flavor of Caprese? (appetizer of tomato, basil, & mozzarella) I love the combination and that is what inspired this dish. Its actually a perfect dish to serve for Mothers Day! Its simple and easy which is what I love for Mothers day!

This was a last minute dinner idea. I was hungry and wanted to use up the tomatoes that we had left from purchasing a case of tomatoes. Italian stuffed chicken or Italian flag chicken is a FABULOUS easy dinner. It also comes out looking like you slaved over this all day!

No matter if you want a dish to impress or just a quick easy dinner. This is the dish to serve! It cooks in under an hour and most of that is time spent just sitting in the oven. We are going to be eating this pretty regularly at our house. Everyone loved it!
