  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, marinate chicken with vinegar, olive oil, and garlic for at least 30 minutes. Saute in a little olive oil until done. Set aside.
  2. Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling water until al dente. Drain, and set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, melt butter or margarine in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add heavy cream, salt, nutmeg, and ground black pepper, and stir until sauce thickens. Reduce heat to low. Add grated Parmesan cheese, and stir until the cheese melts. Set Alfredo sauce aside.
  4. In a large bowl, mix together ricotta cheese, egg, oregano, marjoram, and basil. Mix in cooked chicken.
  5. Stuff cooked manicotti shells with chicken and ricotta mixture. Cover the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish with half of the Alfredo sauce. Place stuffed shells on top of sauce. Pour remaining sauce over shells. Top with one cup shredded mozzarella cheese. Cover with aluminum foil.
  6. Bake at 350 degree F (175 degree C) oven for 45 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

I read the comments on this recipe and I'm glad I did'nt listen to all. Made this with the ingredients the recipe called for except the egg. I think you can look at the ingredients in a recipe a...

This is an excellent recipe just for the Alfredo sauce alone. However, the sauce was missing one thing: fresh garlic. What I do is add 4-5 cloves of slightly crushed garlic to the melted butter,...

This recipe was VERY good!!! I did have to make a few alterations though. I added LOTS more garlic to the sauce and I sauted some diced mushrooms and onions and added them to the sauce! VERY YUM...

This turned out absolutely wonderful. I doubled the recipe and ended up with two full dinners for a family of five (four of them hungry males, self included) and enough leftovers for two lunche...

I omitted the vinegar when marinating the chicken, added spinach to the stuffing, and did 1/2 alfredo, 1/2 marinara sauce to lower the fat and add flavor.

A great recipe idea for sure!! I cut back on the spices a bit, and used 1lb of boneless chicken tenders marinated in olive oil, white wine, and garlic (with pepper, oregano etc.). For past...

This was GREAT! I couldn't find a Ricotta that was 1 pt. I only found one that was around 425 ml. I got the smaller one and wished I had just bought two and had extra. I also added about a cup o...

Great for parties. You can fix it in the morning and bake it after your guests arive. Leaves you with no after dinner mess.
