Ready In:
4 Large Breast Halves




  • Preheat oven to 400.
  • Butterfly chicken breasts. This means to lay them as flat as possible, slice through leaving them connected just enough to open up like a book.
  • Prepare boxed stuffing as directed. By changing the kinds of stuffing you can change up the flavor of the filling, or you can use left over cooked stuffing.
  • Crush croutons and cornflakes, the cleanest way to do this is to place croutons and cornflakes into a zipper type bag and roll it with a rolling pin. Place in shallow dish and set to the side.
  • Prepare pan, line with foil or parchment paper, spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Open up each chicken breast.
  • Place stuffing on half the chicken, make this as full as you want as long as you can fold the top piece of the breast back over, I find using an ice cream scoop is very helpful.
  • Fold over the top of the chicken breast half.
  • Press the stuffed chicken breast into the cornflake breading mixture, coat both sides and press firmly being sure to coat well.
  • Place on pre pared baking sheet.
  • When all are on baking sheet, bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • Half tof each breast is a small serving, slice in half, then make further slices and fan out, using any leftover stuffing as a side, may cover with chicken gravy.
