Pimento Cheese Stuffed Chicken


Enjoy the indulgence of Pimento Cheese Stuffed Chicken. A creamy and flavorful delight for your dinner table. hen we decided a while back to move south, I started reading up on Southern cooking and absolutely fell in LOVE with Southern favorites. My husband often enjoyed the new types of recipes I tried, but always asked for the same old PA Dutch favorites that were so traditional to our upbringing. BUT NOW... he asks when the next new recipe is coming!! YAY! Of all of the things I've tried, this is the one he asks for the most :-)
