Bon appetit! Stuffed chicken breast with vodka sauce!

Hubby and I have had the pleasure of dining at Wolfgang Puck's Restaurants.  We always leave pleased with the quality of the food and the great preparation.  When I came across this recipe I had to save it and here is my adaption of his recipe. 

 I made homemade vodka sauce but feel  free to used jarred sauce....I find Bertolli Vodka sauce to be one of my  hubby's favorite substitutions when I don't get a chance to make homemade..Bon Appetit!

Happy Cooking!
