Go ahead, take the shortcuts. Chicken breasts filled with packaged stuffing rest on a bed of packaged scalloped potatoes, baking up moist and appetizing.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 4 bone-in chicken breast halves, skinless
- 2 cups dry stuffing mix
- 2 (5.5 ounce) packages scalloped potato mix
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
Rinse chicken and pat dry. Cut each chicken breast lengthwise on the side, to form a cavity for stuffing. Prepare stuffing according to package directions. Prepare potatoes according to package directions.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Take a chicken breast and fill the cavity with stuffing; secure with toothpicks. Repeat with all of the chicken breasts. Season breasts with salt and pepper to taste. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat and brown chicken on both sides.
Spread prepared potatoes in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Put chicken breasts bone side down on top of the potatoes. Make a tent like cover for the dish with aluminum foil and bake covered in the preheated oven for 35 to 45 minutes. Remove cover and bake for another 15 minutes.
