Recipe by Chef shapeweaver �
For some unknown reason, I bought a couple of bags of Pepperidge Farms cornbread stuffing mix.And I had to figure out what to do with it, other than make stuffing.So I came up with this recipe,and the twist is using stuffing mix for the coating. If the chicken doesn't get coated completely that's o.k.Serve with gravy and use as a dipping sauce.Please feel free to adjust the amount of red pepper flakes to suit your families tastes.Submitted to "ZAAR" on January 24th,2009.

fantastic!! we all loved these, especially the 3 yo dd! i marinated the chicken in buttermilk overnight before draining and coating. i cut my strips smaller and thinner, so i used about 2 1/2 c of the stuffing mix. instead of the crushed red pepper i used black pepper and a dash of cayenne. i doubled the garlic powder and added some onion powder and seasoned salt. these were so yummy with homemade honey mustard sauce. i will also try these drizzled with butter and baked instead of fried. i'll let ya know how they turn out!!
