Delicious... I used a tbsp of cream to bind the cheeses and this made it nice and moist. I used some more of the cream, a tbsp of mustard and a splash of white wine to make a sauce and served it with saute potatoes and green vegetables. I will be making this again for sure!

Substituted the mozarella for philly, went down a treat and so easy to make!

I found that the tablespoon of mustard totally overpowered the dish. It would have been lovely if about half this amount was used. Was very disappointed as the chicken was so succulent, don't know whether I'd bother making this again. Even hubby left it and he eats everything! :(

I tried this yesterday and it was delicious. The filling is also very good on toast as a variation of cheese on toast. Will definitely cook again.

A very tasty recipe. I stuffed this with boursin garlic cheese too. Glad I did. The family don't like mustard but really flavours the chicken well. I wrap this is parma ham and sprinkle oregano, goes well with baby potatoes and sliced red onion, can put this in the tray at same time - YUM!!!!
