Stuffing flavor under the skin of a chicken breast is a great way to add flavor. Here, Italian flavors dominate, starting with the herbs and cheese in the stuffing. The Balsamic Peppers, Fettuccine with Red Sauce, and Peaches with Amaretti Cookies make it a complete Italian dinner.

Balsamic Peppers

Saute sliced sweet bell peppers (any color combination will be good) in olive oil until tender-crisp, about 6 minutes. Sprinkle with balsamic vinegar and brown sugar. Cook until sugar dissolves, about 2 minutes. Season to taste.

Fettuccine with Red Sauce

Peaches with crumbled Amaretti Cookies
