How to Stuff a Chicken

Stuffing chicken is one common way to prepare poultry. What's more, it typically adds extra flavor to the meat.
  1. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Slice a pocket into side of each chicken breast where breasts were originally attached. Fill pockets in chicken with mixture of your choice. Secure pockets with wooden toothpicks to enclose mixture.

  2. Coat each filled chicken breast with dressing, shaking off excess. Place each chicken breast in breadcrumb mixture; spoon breadcrumb mixture over chicken to coat.

  3. Place chicken in single layer in greased 13 x 9-inch baking pan. Drizzle with more dressing. Cover; bake 15 minutes. Uncover; bake 10 minutes or until chicken is tender. Garnish, if desired.
Breading chicken is another popular method. Find out more about coating and breading in the next section.
