  3. Okay, this sounds yummy but do you know what the calorie count would be for one of these? They sound like they are definitely NOT low calorie.

  4. This was delicious! I am just curious how large each piece of chicken you used was? I think mine were much larger, 3-4oz each maybe, so that jumps up the calories big time.

  5. Its odd who this can be low calorie with all the cheese however I don’t really care this recipe sounds yummy and I enjoy stuffing chicken with different things. Thanks for sharing on A Picnh of Joy
