    Smile OMG the creamy polenta is to die for - such a nice change from the normal pasta, potato or rice ~ I make half the quantity and a little less polenta to the mix, also I used butter instead of oil ~ thank you for a great recipe

    The instructions were easy to follow, however the chicken stuffing and sauce recipe appear to be mixed up (first 3 steps).  Some suggestions on assembling the chicken involtini would be helpful  tmrc_emoticons.)

    Cooked this tonight and it was amazing. However it is missing the steps for putting the chicken together, so I winged it. This will be making it onto a plate again in our house.
