  1. This had a very good flavor. I agree that this would be great with mashed potatoes and gravy. a little cranberry sauce might be good too. I used only 4 chicken breasts but doubled the stuffing and butter because we love stuffing. And I used 1% milk instead of half-and-half. Very tasty!
  2. This was very good and very easy. I made the recipe with 4 breasts but kep ingred amts the same, subbing Kirkland plain organic soy milk for the half and half and using Stove Top Chicken stuffing. The chicken was moist and the flavor was great. I also used smart Balance with Flaxseed Oil for the butter. Thanks for sharing! This was a nice dinner that 3 adults and one 7 year-old boy liked. :)
  3. I love this recipe. The chicken was very moist and tender and the breading was full of flavor. I didn't find that the bottom got soggy for me. I forgot to add the butter to the stuffing mix so drizzled it over the top of the breaded chicken and that worked for me. thanks so much for sharing. :)
  4. I used Pepperidge Farm Stuffing and just ground it in my blender before dipping the chicken. I love the flavor of that stuffing and it was the perfect thing to use for this recipe. The breasts were tender and moist on the inside and crunchy and delicious on the outside! I really look forward to having this again! Thank you for sharing it with us Lainey!

  5. This was really easy and tasty and came out nice and moist. While the top was nice and crispy, I found the bottoms to be a little soggy, and I wish perhaps I had turned them over to avoid this. I used nice, thick breasts, which took the full 40 minutes to bake. I also think some nice gravy would add the right touch, and will definitely make some to go along with this next time. Thanks, Lainey.
