Let’s talk about what you need for this recipe:

Chicken. Boneless skinless chicken breasts work here for a more uniform look and a thicker cut of meat. Feel free to use thighs, too! When cooking, make sure that the internal temperature of the chicken comes to 165F. That way, you’ll know it’s fully cooked inside.

Flour is here to get a little coating on.

Eggs help the flour to stay on and will help any other coating to cling.

Bread crumbs are for the exterior coating. This gives the perfect amount of crispiness.

Salt and pepper are for the seasoning. Feel free to add any extra flavors you might like!

And what do I stuff the chicken with?

Butter. Yup, you read that right. Lean chicken breasts are stuffed with cubed butter and folded over, breaded, and fried to golden brown perfection. Butter elevates your ordinary chicken breast recipe. It provides a layer of moisture and the perfect

amount of fat to your meal.

It really is a no-fuss meal. Especially for picky eaters. And the perfect meal to make if you’re short on time. Let me know if butter stuffed chicken is something you can totally get on board with!
