If you’re looking for an easy, inexpensive weeknight dinner that you can prepare the night before, look no further! This dinner takes about 20 minutes to prepare and is also great because you can throw a couple of easy sides with it and it all comes together very nicely.
For this recipe you’ll need:
2 thick chicken breasts (or 4 thin) cleaned up
1 box stuffing mix (whichever kind will do, I use chicken)
1 cup water
2 eggs (beaten)
1/2 cup of milk
1 can of cream of chicken soup
3-4 dashes of paprika
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees if baking right away. Fillet each chicken breast making 4 pieces total. **Tip: A lot of grocery store meat counters will fillet the meat for you if you ask.
Next, combine the stuffing mix and water and let sit for about 5 minutes to come together. Add eggs to the stuffing mixture.
Next, you’ll want to put about 1/3 a cup of the stuffing mixture on to each chicken breast near the thinner end of the chicken breast.
Roll each chicken breast in to a tube with the stuffing mixture in the middle.
After you’ve rolled each chicken breast, place each one in to a dish sprayed with cooking spray.
Mix the milk and cream of chicken soup together until smooth and cover all of the chicken breasts with the soup mixture.
Once the chicken breasts are covered with the soup mixture, sprinkle a dash of paprika on top of each chicken breast.
You are ready to put this dish in the oven to bake. Simply place it in an oven preheated to 400 degrees and bake for 30 minutes. Like I mentioned above, this is a great recipe to make ahead. If you are preparing this for the next evening’s meal, simply place a cover on top of the dish and refrigerate until you are ready to bake. **Tip: A lot of ovens have a preset option to start preheating before you arrive at home, that way when you get there, the oven is preheated and you save a few minutes waiting for the oven to preheat. Check your oven’s manual for directions.
Once cooked all the way through and juices run clear, you are ready to serve your chicken stuffing rolls!
