I was brainstorming for yet another original way to use B&S Chicken breasts. Finally came up with this wild idea, Crab meat stuffing. The fact I had this small can of crab meat that needed using kinda contributed to the idea. I plotted for a while, came up with some interesting ideas but at the last moment decided to check the Zaar files. Ran the search engine 3 different ways to be sure and SONOFAGUN,, there was one. Crab Stuffed Chicken (aka Fancy Chicken) #37037 by MackinacBride. So I used it as a base and MUST credit it though I changed nearly everything. It was REALLY great. Give eather a try you'll likely love it.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 large b&s chicken breasts
  • 3 ounces softened cream cheese
  • 4 ounces crabmeat, about half a can.
  • 1 teaspoon minced chives (I used dehydrated)
  • 18 teaspoon zatarains liquid crab boil concentrate, this stuff is realy powerful,watch it.
  • 18 teaspoon onion powder, i used toasted.
  • toothpick, to close.
  • 2 tablespoons butter, there is a taste difference,so use it.
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 2 -3 tablespoons flour, to dust.
  • 12 cup panko breadcrumbs or 12 cup breadcrumbs, to coat.

Directions

  1. Start preheating the oven to 350°F.
  2. Let the cream cheese soften and mix in the Crab boil, Chives, Dehydrated onion, Check for Salt& Pepper.
  3. Fold in the Crab Meat.
  4. Carefully make a pocket in the Chicken breasts and stuff with the cheese- crab mix.
  5. Seal the edge with toothpicks.
  6. Heat the Butter in an oven safe skillet, medium heat, to the Brown Butter stage.
  7. Dust the breasts with Flour.
  8. Dip in the Egg.
  9. Coat them well with the Panko or Crumbs.
  10. Saute until lightly browned, around 5 min side one, turn and about4 min side 2.
  11. Pour out any excess butter, it's done its job.
  12. Jog to make sure the breasts are free in the skillet.
  13. Finish in the oven around 14 minute.
  14. The skillet is already hot so it speeds the process.
  15. Remove the toothpicks and prepare for a treat.
  16. Again I thank MackinacBride for the framework.

I didnt have the crab boil handy, so I gave it some generous shakes of Cajun spice mix. The wife loved it.
