I love to assemble the stuffed shells in advance, then cover and chill. On a busy day I can pull them out of the fridge top them with Alfredo sauce and mozzarella cheese, then bake. While they're baking I have time to put a salad and garlic bread together. A terrific time saver, and budget friendly too. Heat a grill pan or iron skillet over medium heat, drizzle with olive oil, and cook the chicken on both sides until it's done.
