  • Ready In

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Pour the milk into a shallow bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and water. Place the bread crumbs in a shallow dish or on a plate. Dip the chicken breast halves into the milk, then into the egg, then press into the bread crumbs to coat. Place on a plate, and set aside.
  3. Prepare the stuffing mix according to the package directions, but substituting apple juice for the water. When bringing the juice and butter to a boil, add the diced apple with peel to the pan. Stir in the stuffing mix until the liquid is absorbed. Transfer the stuffing to a baking dish, and top with the pieces of the remaining apple. Place the chicken breasts on top of the stuffing, and cover with aluminum foil.
  4. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until the chicken juices run clear.

This is a really good recipe for those of us who love the taste of apples in our stuffing, and I have made it for my holiday dinners for two years now. However, I make it with several changes without which I don't think it would be that good, hence the four stars. First off, instead of using two cups of apple juice, I use one cup of apple juice and one cup of broth. It is still very apple-y with only one cup, so I imagine that it is way too sweet with two (some people may even prefer 1/2 cup of juice and and 1 1/2 cups broth). Next, I use tart Granny Smith apples instead of red delicious. The tartness of the apples is much more suitable for a main dish and works better with the flavors. Lastly, I also add a sauteed onion and some poultry seasoning (sage and thyme) to the stuffing. With these changes, it is an excellent dish! Thanks for the recipe. It was a great starting point for one of my favorite main dishes.


This was SO yummy! I modified it a bit, as per other reviews, so I did 1/2 apple juice, 1/2 water. I also used Italian breadcrumbs which added nice flavor to the chicken, and I added some sauted onion and some chopped celery, because I had it on hand. Definitely a keeper.


I was looking for a way to prepare chicken breasts with "Thanksgiving" style and this hit the spot! I replaced the apple juice with chicken stock and added celery and onions to the stuffing. Thanks for sharing!
