The Best Stuffed Chicken Recipe

My kids absolutely love cheese, almost just as much as they love eating chicken. My kids know that on each plate of food we eat for dinner we must have a vegetable.

So to make things a little more interesting I have found stuffing our chickens with their servings of veggies helps cut down those wrinkled nose effects at the dinner table. That and layering the veggies with cheese and covering it with chicken just makes it that much tastier.

Open Nature Air Chilled Chicken

Open Nature® recently added a NEW product to the line: Open Nature® Air Chilled Chicken, available exclusively in Safeway. This new product has this mom going bonkers over chicken-themed dinners at the moment. I found my  Open Nature Air Chilled Chicken in the meat aisle of my Safeway and had to give it a try.

Some things I love about this new product are that the chickens are fed a proprietary flaxseed-based diet, for chicken that is up to 300% higher in beneficial omega-3’s and 40% lower in cholesterol (vs. conventional chicken). Of course, there are no antibiotics ever, live Cage-free and are American Humane Certified.
