This is much like the preparation for Chicken Parmesan... but twisted. I have seriously picky eaters and am constantly trying new things in hopes that they'll eat. This was a hit.

There's nothing dry or boring about these chicken breasts. This is a superb family meal. It's delicious with herb-seasoned stuffing crumbs used as the crust. The chicken is slathered in gravy and baked with cheese until bubbly. Serve with pasta or over rice, and you have a meal your family will definitely be requesting again.

Ingredients

  • 3
    boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 box
    stuffing mix, herb-seasoned (beat with a rolling pin until the consistency of bread crumbs), 6 oz
  • 1 pkg
    dry Italian salad dressing mix(for marinade)

How to Make Hillbilly Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. Rinse and pat dry breasts.
  2. Rub with Italian dressing mix. Marinate for at least a few hours.
  3. Pound chicken breasts down as you would for chicken parmesan and cut in half. (Trust me... a half breast is a big portion for this recipe!)
  4. Dredge in beaten eggs and stuffing crumbs.
  5. Fry in olive oil until browned.
  6. Prepare gravy according to instruction, but do NOT heat it.
  7. Pour about half of the gravy (cold) into the bottom of 9x13 pan.
  8. Place breading and browned chicken on top.
  9. Pour remaining gravy over the top.
  10. Top with about 1/4 cup of shredded Italian cheese on each breast.
  11. Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 375 for 30 minutes. Gravy will have thickened and cheese will be melted.
  12. No need to remove foil to brown. I served this with a green salad with hardboiled eggs and mixed veggies.
