  • 2 cups seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup hot water

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 4 bone-in chicken breast halves
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

Place about 1/3 cup stuffing under the skin of each chicken breast; secure with toothpicks. In a shallow bowl, combine flour and paprika; coat chicken. Place in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Drizzle with remaining butter.
  2. Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 1 to 1-1/4 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 170°. Meanwhile, for sauce, saute mushrooms and onion in butter until tender. Stir in the flour, salt and pepper.

"We really liked the chicken. I am going to try it next time with a premade stuffing mix...The sauce was somewhat questionable though. It had mixed reviews, and my batch came out really thick, so I added more cream. I think next time, I will reduce the sour cream or maybe the flour."

"I made this with a few modifications based on what I had and we all loved it. I'm planning on adding it to my menu of regulars."
