Rachel Rays chicken lovebirds
Don't skip the fig preserves and the fontina cheese. Both make a wonderful pairing of flavors.

One can also prepare a few hours ahead of time before baking.
Also I brushed with some melted butter instead of an egg wash.
I found out even the 8 appetizer amount could also serve as a main dish if served with a starch and vegetable
