Have you ever tried using stuffing as...breading? It's not as strange as you think. In fact, starting with stuffing makes our Crispy-Coat Chicken even crispier than using bread crumbs. Give this moist and crunchy coated chicken a try tonight!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (7-ounce) package herb-seasoned stuffing, finely crushed
  • 1 (0.7 ounce) package Italian salad dressing mix
  • 1 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 2 eggs, well beaten
  • 1 chicken (about 3 pounds), cut into 8 pieces
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray
  2. In a shallow dish, combine stuffing crumbs, Italian dressing mix, and sage; set aside.
  3. In another shallow dish, whisk eggs. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper, then dip in the egg. Roll chicken in crumb mixture until evenly coated on all sides, then place on baking sheet.
  4. Bake 1 hour, or until chicken is no longer pink in center.


For flavor variations, add these ingredients to the stuffing crumbs:

  • Asian: 1 tablespoon brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger, and 1 tablespoon sesame seed
  • Cajun: 2 teaspoons paprika, 1/2 teaspoon thyme leaves, and 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Italian: 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

And for a great go-along, team this with a side of our Asparagus with Hollandaise Sauce!

What would be the cooking time for boneless thighs and breasts?

Hi there! While the Test Kitchen has not made this recipe using boneless chicken thighs and boneless chicken breasts, we believe that the cooking time would be 30 minutes or until the chicken is no longer pink the center. Enjoy!

This was a different quickand easy meal that was delious and had a hardtime finding it so i can do it again .

I have Italian herb croutons. Can I use this for the stuffing if I crush it finely?

Yup, you can use herb croutons as a substitute!

Thank you!
