Can you make this recipe ahead?

Yes, you can make it ahead of time and serve it the next day. Just prep the whole breast with the filling. Before you bake it, bring it out to room temperature about 45 minutes before baking. That way the filling isn’t too cold and it can cook all the way through during baking. After cooking, it’s easy to freeze any leftovers too.
