The feta and bacon stuffed chicken breasts sound absolutely delish! Thanks for posting!

I just looked at the recipe in one of the 30 min meals books - I thought it looked familiar. Do you generally enjoy the Rachel Ray recipes or do you find that they just "look" easier on TV?
Thanks - great menu!!

I actually haven't tried many Rachel recipes. I do enjoy watching her show on TV, but my boys are rather picky about ingredients, and she often uses things that are just too weird for them. This soup, though, is very easy to make and tastes great.
