Let's face it, chicken breasts are really bland. Especially when there's no skin (i.e. fat and flavor). And baked chicken has a reputation for being even worse! When you don't sear it at all over the stovetop, you're losing out on texture too. It doesn't have to be this way. There are ways to make this innately boring cut of meat into something really delicious that will have the whole family excited. And no, it doesn't always mean stuffing the chicken.
