This was my great-grandmother’s recipe. I have another version made with mushroom soup, which cuts down on prep time, but sometimes you just can’t take shortcuts! Try serving it with egg noodles and steamed veggies. —Julie Stack, Pewaukee, Wisconsin

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon canola oil
  • 3/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


  1. Flatten chicken to 1/2-in. thickness. For stuffing, in a small nonstick skillet, saute onion and green pepper in oil until tender. Transfer to a small bowl. Stir in the bread crumbs, water and poultry seasoning.
  2. Place 1/4 cup stuffing over each chicken breast. Roll up from a short side and secure with toothpicks. In a shallow bowl, combine the flour, paprika, salt and pepper. Coat chicken in flour mixture.
  3. Place seam side down in an 11x7-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Spritz chicken with cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until a thermometer reads 170°. Discard toothpicks.
  4. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute mushrooms and onion in oil until tender. Whisk flour and milk; add to pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in the sour cream, salt and pepper. Serve with chicken.
