Baked Chicken Breast is my Favorite
Boneless chicken breasts are my favorite cut of meat. You might think I'm boring, and that's ok. 🙂
I know a lot of people would probably rather eat a steak, or seafood, or something like that. But not me.
I'll go with my husband to seafood restaurants or steak houses. But when I scan the menu, I'm looking for chicken breasts.
For one, I've never cared for seafood. And even though I enjoy a good steak, I still prefer a juicy chicken breast covered in sauce and maybe some onions and peppers on top. Yum!
I know chicken breast meat can tend to be dry if it's not done right. But when it's baked to perfection, it is quite delightfully tender and juicy.

Stovetop Stuffing Chicken Breast
This recipe for baked chicken breast with stovetop stuffing is so quick and easy to make. Just open a can of cream soup and then sprinkle the top with ready-made stuffing cubes. And you'll have a delicious dish ready in no time!
But maybe you don't like to use canned soups. And perhaps you prefer to make stuffing from scratch. That's totally fine.
But it definitely takes more time. And since most of us seem to be short on time, it's just easier to grab the ready-made ingredients and quickly put them together.
I'm from a small town (in the middle of nowhere 🙂 ), and I don't have any place locally where I can buy young fresh chicken. So I end up buying the big fat breasts at Walmart. I cut them in half, and they work fine.
But there is a big difference in chicken. And if you want the best, tender chicken breast, you'll need to find someone who sells young, fresh chicken.
It will make a difference, I guarantee.
Cooking Chicken Breast
As I mentioned before, chicken breast will tend to be dry if it is overcooked (and I don't like dry meat). Therefore, the best way to tell if it is cooked enough, but not overcooked, is by using a meat thermometer.
For an accurate temperature measurement, push the probe into the fattest part of the chicken. And chicken is considered safe to eat at 165 degrees.
I like my chicken thighs and legs a little more well-done (180 degrees), but chicken breast is better if not cooked too long.
Bring the internal temperature to 165 degrees. Then remove it from the oven and let it rest for 5 - 10 minutes to bring it to perfection.
What to Serve with Baked Chicken Breast
Many different sides would be great with these creamy Amish chicken breasts.
And rice is one of my favorites to serve with this dish. You can spoon the chicken and sauce over top of the rice and it works great together.
Or simply serve it with a side lettuce salad.
