Stuffing-Coated Chicken Recipe

Stuffing-Coated Chicken Recipe

I found this recipe in an old church cookbook, and it quickly became a favorite. I've used the microwaves at work to reheat left over for lunch. When the aroma of garlic and Parmesan cheese grabs the attention of coworkers, they all ask for the recipe. -Patricia Inman Litchfield, Minnesota
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 45 min. YIELD:5 servings


  • 1-1/2 cups stuffing mix, finely crushed
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 5 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)


  • 1. In a shallow dish, combine the stuffing crumbs and Parmesan cheese. In another shallow dish, combine butter and garlic. Dip chicken in butter mixture, then coat with stuffing mixture. Place in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish.
  • 2. Sprinkle with remaining stuffing mixture and drizzle with remaining butter mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 170°. Yield: 5 servings.

"Absolutely delicious. Too easy to be so delicious. I used some turkey stuffing I already had and it was so good. We will be having this again. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor."

"What a brilliant idea for oven baked chicken! I'm making it tomorrow, but I already gave it 5 *s because it looks & sounds very delicious, and it's also very easy to prepare. I can't wait to serve this lovely chicken dish to my hungry crew!"

"Loved this recipe! So easy, yet so flavorful. I did put extra garlic because we love garlic. My 5 year old said " This is very good, Mommy!" The 2 year old ate it up, and the 3 1/2 year ( who doesn't even like chicken unless it's nuggets) told me to make it again. This gem is getting archived!"

"Loved this recipe. Substituted cheddar cheese croutons for the stuffing. My son said that he would eat the coating on it's own!"

"This recipe was very easy, but our chicken turned out dry. I will try again and cook for 30 min. Our boneless breast were thin and I think they were cooked to long."
