Cooking with Wendi McLendon-Covey
The Challenge: Stuffed Chicken Caprese
"I'm not helpless in the kitchen. I have cooked successfully for eight people without having a nervous breakdown."
"The recipe called for store-bought pesto, but making my own with garlic and basil cubes—they're fast and easy to work with—only took a minute and a half."
"I couldn't grill the chicken breasts because the weather wasn't cooperating, so I broiled them in the oven. They turned out fine, but I can't tell you how long I actually cooked them. Next time, I'll use my grill."
"Assembly was easy until I tried to wrap the prosciutto around the stuffed breasts. The tomatoes kept falling out, but I suppose that's my fault for not slicing everything thinner. The chicken was delicious. I'll definitely make this again."
