Recipe: Feta and Basil Stuffed Chicken Breast with Lemon Cream Sauce

Feta and Basil Stuffed Chicken Breast with Lemon Cream SauceBored of the same old recipes and on a mission to make a stuffed chicken breast my kids would love, I threw this together. Brooke was happy because it wasn’t cream cheese (she hates cream cheese, crazy kid) and 2 of my boys gobbled it up.  Erik- who has been picky about everything lately- wasn’t much of a fan, but I don’t judge my recipes on him anymore. He did, however, gobble up the honey carrots and salad.   Honey carrots were a hit (recipe to come later)! Gary’s words were, “Mmmm, this is definitely a keeper”!  I agree. SO good.
