How to Store Long-Stemmed Fresh Herbs

Place long-stemmed fresh herbs, such as basil, parsley, cilantro and dill, in a tall glass with the stem ends down. Fill with an inch of cold water; make sure no leaves are under the water. Cover the leaves loosely with a plastic bag and refrigerate until ready to use, changing the water every 2 days. Herbs should stay vibrant and fresh for about 5 days.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This recipe according to my brother was great! This recipe according to my brother was great! Therefore, I will probably make it again if only for him. He absolutely loved it and thought the bundles were the cutest thing ever! I on the other hand thought it was good and after reading one of the comments agree that next time I will try chicken gravy to accompany the dish. This I think will make it an even better dish. When I made this dish I added the following to the recipe for an extra kick; onions, green peppers, hot pepper, and fresh garlic to the stuffing and seasoned the chicken. My favourite part of the dish was the tomatoes in the stuffing which provided a really nice flare.

I am always looking for healthy recipes to assist my husband with his health issues, so I am a little picky about what I make. This receipe looked scrumptious, but I too thought it was high in sodium. So when I went shopping, I found an Italian Herb blend cheese; it had less sodium than the mozzarella. I couldn't find the dressing so I used Zesty Italian, and I used Del Monte basil, garlic & oregano (no salt added) diced tomatoes because they only had 50mg of sodium. I found a Stove Top Lower Sodium for chicken stuffing too. There are ways to reduce the sodium, you just have to look for them. The end result was delicious too!

This is SO incredibly easy, I cannot stress to you how little culinary knowledge you need to have prior to making this. Also, I would think this would be easy and fun to make with kids, except you should do the "beating" of the chicken. In addition, I made this for 2 people and found that this recipe works great just the way it is, except using between 3-4 chicken breasts. Use the remainder of the stuffing mix and spread it around the chicken and then coat it with a little more italian dressing. It bakes so nicely and is crispy and perfect while the stuffing inside the chicken comes out nice and moist. Such a fantastic recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My husband and I LOVE this recipe! My husband and I LOVE this recipe! It looks like it takes hours to prepare, and, while it is a little labor intensive, it doesn't take nearly as long as it looks! I make it for company when I want to impress ;-) Fresh basil REALLY makes a difference! I always end up having a lot of leftover stuffing, so I add it to the top and sides of the dish and we have a little extra as a side dish. I've started marinating the chicken breasts in the dressing overnight - it adds a LOT of flavor and makes them super moist and juicy! Tip: Make sure you have the chicken skin side DOWN when you pound - it won't fall apart that way!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this recipe without the dressing required. I made this recipe without the dressing required. I used a little more cheese than the recipe called for as well as using just regular Italian and sprinkled crushed peppers on top of the chicken. It was a great twist on regular chicken breasts. I served it with mashed potatoes and green beans. My boyfriend and I really enjoyed the recipe and will definitely add it to our routine. This was one of the easiest recipes to make and prep time took less than 15 minutes. I had all the items on the ingredient list already in my house. I also substituted the fresh basil for the dry. Great recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! WOW! My family of "men" loved it - shock!! They never devour anything I make on the fly. Husband, 8 yr old, 6 yr old, 3 yr old - ALL asked for seconds. Granted they also really liked helping me pound the meat - I think I'll get the thin cutlets next time though. I used frozen chopped spinach to save time - tasted awesome. And I only had a Garlic Parmesan dressing so I used that - again awesome. I took someone else's advice and I added more dressing, cut with some water, to the dish when baking and it was wonderful to drizzle on top once served. Love, love love this recipe.

We take a week at a time and quite honestly, without admitting, try to one up each other. This recipe as well as several others from have won me the Meal of the month award (so to speak). I am chomping at the bit to share the web sight with them because of all of the wonderful recipes but I am not quite ready to give away my secret. However, I share them at work and also with MY side of the family on a regular basis. Thank you thank you thank you!!!! HELEN

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was awsome! This was awsome! I made a few changes. I used rotel tomatoes and provalone chez. And I also sprinkled a lil more on top of the stuffing. I had extra stuffing left over so I just put in the pan w/the chicken and let it cook. I didnt measure the dressing, I just made sure all the meat had a baste of it then added a lil more to make sure it wouldnt get dry. We made a spinach salad, and the sweetness of the salad went great with the spicey tomatoes. My husband loved it-which I honelty thought he would hate. Definatly will be making it again!!!!
