- The chicken breast can be swapped out for something like chicken thigh instead.
- If you’re unable to get your hands on some dry bread stuffing, then you could use breadcrumbs instead. For the best results, I would look at using something like panko breadcrumbs.
- Swiss cheese is ideal for this recipe but can be swapped out for another cheese if required. Something like a cheddar will be an ample replacement.
