Chicken Breasts on Potato Stuffing

Comment on this recipe

"I found this recipe years ago and this has become a dish we all enjoy and very nice for when entertaining guests."

Ingredients

3/4 cup butter or margarine, divided
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 cup finely chopped celery
4 cups mashed potatoes (See note)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup dried bread cubes
1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1/2 cup chopped parsley
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 chicken breasts, halved
Paprika

Instructions

Preheat oven 375 degrees. Grease 9x13-inch pan.

Prepare potato stuffing: Melt 1/2 cup butter in large skillet; saute onion and celery for 5 minutes.

Turn into large mixing bowl. Add potatoes, eggs, dried bread cubes, poultry seasoning, parsley, salt and pepper; mix well. Spread in pan.

Arrange chicken breasts, skin side up, on stuffing; dot with remaining butter or margarine. Sprinkle with paprika.

Bake in preheated oven, 375 degrees, for 1 hour 15 minutes or until nicely brown and chicken done.

Note: "I use the equivalent in instant mashed potatoes and it works fine. Make a little stiffer though."
