Pine Chicken Holiday

Pine Chicken Holiday

I made this Pine Chicken Holiday a few days before Christmas. It’s a stuffed chicken recipe from the Life Gets Better website and such a festive dish too. I tweaked it a little by halving some of the ingredients and using wheat bread.


I served it for lunch and they loved it. I personally liked the stuffing and I couldn’t stop eating it.
