  • 2 TBLSP. fresh Cilantro chopped 4 Boneless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs (we crush them)


  1. 1. Spray 12x8 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. In a small bowl, combine chili powder, cumin, salt, and paprika; mix well. Reserve 1 TBLSP. of seasoning & set aside. To the remaining seasoning mixture, add the bread crumbs and mix well.
  2. 2. In a medium skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add celery & onions and sweat. Saute' 5 to 7 minutes or until tender. Add corn, cheese, cilantro and bread crumb with the seasoning mixture.
  3. 3. Cut a pocket in each chicken breast and spoon in the stuffing mixture abundantly. Close with toothpicks or they are best when fixed ahead. To prepare ahead, after stuffing, wrap in saran wrap and be sure to cover all the breast. Chill for a couple of hours or so and allow the flavors of the stuffing mix to blend well.
  4. 4. In your baking dish, place chicken breasts and cover loosely with foil and bake in oven at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until the juices from the thick part of the breast is clear. Remove from oven and cover loosely with foil to set for 5-10 minutes to allow temp. to level and the juice to return to the meat. Serve and enjoy.

    They have omitted that I use 3/4 tsp. chili powder, 3/4 tsp. cumin. 1/2 tsp. Kosher salt and 1/4 tsp. paprika to prepare the seasoning mix. You can also grill this chicken if you wish.
