Angie’s Cream Cheese Stuffed Chicken

The deliciousness of the recipe is my 2nd favorite thing about it! Mostly I love that so many of the items can be substituted. Such as the crust; I used crushed cornflakes some fried onions & parmesan cheese.  You can use panko, bread crumbs, crushed funions, whatever you have! For the cream cheese mix, I had garlic salt, pepper, onions and basil leaves. You can use whatever is tasty. Parsley, diced garlic, other spices you like… It’s endless. Just the basic directions are the same!  PS: My husband took 1 bite and told me to add this to my normal rotation. I’d say that’s a win.
