Crab-Stuffed Chicken

"This is a luscious change from plain chicken and it's nice for company," assures Pat Durrie of Omaha, Nebraska. "The combination of crab, chicken, spaghetti sauce and cheese is great."
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
  • Makes
    4 servings


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1/2 cup lump crabmeat, drained
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 2 cups meatless spaghetti sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • Hot cooked pasta, optional


  • Flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness; top with crab. Roll up tightly and secure with toothpicks. In a shallow bowl, combine the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, onion powder and basil. Roll chicken in crumb mixture; set remaining mixture aside.
  • Place chicken in a shallow 1-1/2-qt. microwave-safe dish coated with cooking spray. Cover and microwave on high for 2-3 minutes. Turn the chicken; sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture. Cover and cook for 2-3 longer or until chicken juices run clear.
  • Top with spaghetti sauce. Cover and microwave on high for 2-3 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with cheese; heat, uncovered, for 30-60 seconds or until the cheese is melted. Let stand for 5 minutes. Serve over pasta if desired.

    The recipe was very filling. I used imitation crab. I did not care for the flavor but that may have been due to the imitation crab that I used. I used an off brand that I was not familiar with. My other half said the crab did nothing for the recipe. Thus, we will not be making this again.
