Traditionally chicken breast never tasted so good as when it is done in the steam oven. For those of you without a steam oven, consider using a bain marie in your traditional oven...you will never go back! This recipe is so adaptable for all tastes. Just use your imagination with the fillings, remembering not to overstuff as you want the filling to stay inside the chicken! This was so good today that we all licked the plate clean! Really!

Stuffing options of choice
