Kitty's Fontina & Onion Stuffed Chicken

Katrina Freed


Do as I say... not as I do. This is the only photo I have of this amazing recipe. The first time I made it I sliced the chicken all wrong. The stuffing goes in the "side pocket" not the top. We all make mistakes and this recipe is so delicious you can't mess it up even if you try!
