Crab Stuffed Chicken (Aka Fancy Chicken)

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 25 mins

I was searching the internet 2 valentines days ago for a romantic, not too foo-fooey recipe and found this (don't remember what site). This is now my BH's version of comfort food, whenever he feels down he asks me to make "that fancy chicken". I like to serve it with garlic mashed potatoes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine cream cheese, crabmeat, and soup mix, set aside.
  2. Cut a 'pocket' into the side of each chicken breast (be sure not to cut all the way through!).
  3. Fill each pocket with the cream cheese mixture and close the opening with toothpicks.
  4. Dip chicken breasts in flour-> Eggs-> Breadcrumbs.
  5. In large skillet, melt oil and butter over medium-high heat.
  6. Add chicken to skillet, cook for 10 minutes, or till golden brown, turning once.
  7. Transfer chicken to 13x9 pan and bake in a 350°F oven, uncovered, for 15 minutes or until chicken is done.

Wow!! The kids all loved it. The high fat content discouraged me at first, so I cut down the crm. cheese, took out the egg yolks and used margarine. This was very flavorful. Thanks!!

This was my first experience stuffing chicken and it was SO easy! I will make this again, most def! My husband LOVED this, my brother was very impressed and I was pleased as punch to serve it and eat it! I pounded the chicken breasts flat with a meat mallet and discovered a creative outlet for stress! I also used imitation crabmeat- the results were fabulous!
