“I'm stuffed” is usually something that's said after eating, not before. But stuffed here isn't “can't eat another bite.” Instead, it's more like, “give me every bite of that delicious and succulent chicken stuffed with fresh parsley, nutty almonds, and tart goat cheese. I can't get enough of the stuffed chicken!” Words can have so many meanings! Tip: Easier way to mince parsley? Gather them all in one hand and lay on the cutting board. Use your knife in rocking motion to cut, then turn 90 degrees and repeat until the herbs are properly minced!
