Carla DiTondo - Thursday, October 18, 2018

Recipe of the week...

Butter & Garlic Stuffed Bone-In Split Chicken Breast


  • 4 split chicken breasts, ribs removed (optional)
  • 2-3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • Salt or your favorite Salt Seasoning, to taste

We suggest using "Kiss & Tell", Garlic Infused Sea Salt, by SALTOPIA Infused Salts


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Trim two split chicken breast of any extra fat and trim off rib section if you desire. (not a must, and will give you more tasty skin if you keep it). Pat dry.
  2. Prep a baking pan by lining with aluminum foil and spraying with cooking spray or brushing with thin layer of vegetable oil. Set aside.
  3. Crush cloves of garlic and chop. In a small pan, add olive oil over medium-high heat. When hot, add garlic and cook, stirring constantly to prevent burning, until transparent. About 2 minutes
  4. Place butter in a small bowl and microwave for 10 seconds to soften. Add the cooked garlic to the melted butter and stir to completely melt the butter.
  5. On the thicker side of the chicken breast, cut a 1-inch slot and use your finger create a pocket inside the breast without causing another hole on the other side. BE CAREFUL DOING THIS & TAKE YOUR TIME!
  6. Reserve about 2 teaspoons of the butter/garlic mixture and then add 1/2 of the remaining mixture to each pocket and spread it around the pocket. Brush the remaining butter mixture on the skin of the breast.
  7. Place your prepped chicken breasts onto your prepared baking pan. Season to taste with your favorite salt or seasoning blend.
  8. Bake at 400°F for about 45 minutes - Until internal temperature is 165° (or until juices are running clear in the pan). Allow to set for 5-10 minutes before serving.

Serve with potato or rice, and your favorite vegetable or side salad! To make your life easier, simply grab "Heat & Eat" sides from our prepared food case!
