How to stuff crab meat into the chicken breast

Carefully roll up the breast to encase the filling. It can be helpful to use the plastic wrap to assist in the rolling. Fold edges over, if desired. You may also use toothpicks if needed to maintain the crab stuffed chicken breasts' integrity. Roll in cornstarch, coating heavily.

Very nice crab stuffed chicken breast. The sauce was nicely balanced with a subtle tang from the reduced wine enhanced by the richness of the cream.

Quite easy to prepare and make, after browning in the skillet I finished the breasts in a pre-heated oven then served on a bed of the sauce with more sauce placed on top.

Enjoyed this recipe veery much, was very surprised at how good it taste, although I did not hot have the green pepper I subws celery and red onion in my sauce and this worked very well, it was easy to make but time consuming and worth every minute , great taste, used jumbo lump crab and a basic crab imperial inside the chicken, very good indeed, just a small amount of Myer lemon and a big pinch of Old Bay for good measure, we loved it!
