Meal time!

Being a Mom of young children, I don't have a whole lot of time to make fancy, healthy meals that require long and intense preparation. Also, I'm poor.

Pretty much it.

I have many friends that are either Moms or students (Which, financially speaking, are pretty much the same), and I know that it's important for both of them to eat properly, but not feel like it has to be a big production.
This recipe is super simple, uses things that you usually have on hand and is easy to pair with a side.

Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Preheat oven to 350F

5-6 chicken breasts
1 cup stuffing
1 can cream of chicken soup
pepper or paprika to taste
Wooden toothpicks

Make stuffing. Honestly, if you're as poor as lazy as I am, you get the StoveTop yumminess. It takes two seconds, and it's cheap as hell.
Butterfly chicken breasts (See here), and put about two spoonfuls of stuffing on top of each breast. Roll up breasts, and pin together with toothpicks.
Place them on a baking sheet with tin foil (For easy clean up!), and cover with cream of chicken soup. Don't be wimp - Use your hand to scoop that soup out and coat the top of the breasts. Cover with a little pepper or paprika.
Bake for one hour.

If you have a little bit more time, cut up a small onion and fry it in a little butter (or margarine, because you're poor) until translucent and add it to the stuffing before putting it on the breasts. Make sure you fluff the stuffing and coat it in the butter/onion mixture evenly.
Now because stuffing is usually a side, you can probably just get away with some corn or peas on the side of this dish. I prefer making some mashed potatoes, just sayin'.


  1. Where's the yummy option? I see check boxes for funny, interesting and cool....but no 'yummy' or 'delish'???!!? What the fudge?

  2. Sounds kind of like my mom's chicken stuffing casserole. Same thing, pan cook the chicken with butter, maybe throw some onions in there if you like. Throw the cooked chicken in a casserole dish, slop out some cream of chicken and or cream of mushroom soup; cover the chicken. Make a box or two of stovetop stuffing, put it on top of the chicken and soup. Feel free to add things like broccoli, sauteed carrots, garlic.... Bake the whole thing in the oven at 350deg for 30-40 minutes. I'm kind of chubby, I like throwing shredded cheddar cheese in there. ;)
