How to Cook a Deboned Stuffed Chicken
Stuffed, deboned chicken breasts make a delicious and impressive main course.

Whole chickens that have been deboned and stuffed with a savory filling make an easy main course. You can find prepared stuffed chickens in the fresh or freezer sections of most grocery stores, or prepare your own filling. Stuffing your own chicken helps you cut back on the high fat and calorie levels often found in prepared foods. By stuffing your own chicken, you also ensure there aren't any preservatives or other chemicals in your meal.

Step 1

Ask a butcher to debone a chicken for you.

Step 2

Mix together a stuffing for the chicken in a large bowl. Combine favorite ingredients, such as lean ground pork, cheese and herbs.

Step 3

Lay the chicken flat on a cutting board, skin side down, and dump the filling on top of the chicken. Spread the filling evenly over the chicken.

Step 4

Wrap the chicken around the filling, rolling the meat up from one end to form a log shape.

Step 5

Tie the chicken tightly together around the filling with kitchen twine.

Step 6

Cook the chicken immediately after stuffing.


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 375 F.

Step 2

Place a fresh stuffed chicken breast on a rimmed baking sheet. Cover the sheet with aluminum foil if the breast is frozen.

Step 3

Place the chicken in the oven and cook, undisturbed for an hour and 15 minutes if fresh. If frozen, cook the chicken covered for one hour and 45 minutes, then uncover the dish and cook for another 30 minutes.

Step 4

Use a meat thermometer to check the doneness of the chicken. Remove the chicken from the oven when the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165 F.
