    Fantastic! I forgot to put the parmesan cheese in the filling too, so I can imagine it's even better with it. A little trick I learned when you are filling a chicken breast is to butterfly the chicken breast first and then pound it to flatten, you end up with a much bigger piece of meat to work with. On the edges, pound it very thin, because when you are rolling and folding the edges in, the edges get very thick.  -  01 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
