Kraft Foods Chicken Parmesan Bundles
Why I Love This Recipe
I got this recipe from my Kraft Foods book. I really loved it! I tricked my husband and son with this. They do not like spinach! I wouldn't tell them what the green stuff was in it until after they ate it. They thought it was really good and couldn't believe there was spinach in it!
