Breaded chicken recipe ideas need not be loaded with fat and calories. This lightened-up chicken and kale entree is pan-fried rather than deep-fried to score the same crispy cornbread chicken coating (minus all the oil).

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 250°F. Place stuffing mix in a shallow dish. Lightly coat chicken with cooking spray. Dip chicken into stuffing mix, turning to coat.

  • In an extra-large skillet heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook for 6 to 8 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink (165°F) and coating is golden, turning once. If necessary, add more oil to the skillet after turning chicken. Transfer chicken to a baking sheet; keep warm in oven.

  • Wipe skillet. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and the onion to skillet. Cook and stir over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes or just until onion is tender. Add kale, vinegar, salt, and pepper; cook and stir just until kale is wilted. Serve chicken with kale mixture.

Indeed, a lite and lovely meal! The only differences, I added the vinegar to the onions to caramelize. I buy a bag of mixed and chopped greens, using 1/3 for this, 1/3 for a nice crisp chicken salad with my fave salad add ins, 1/3 for soup. The 2 remaining fillets go into a creamy corn and potato soup, the coating adds a nice richness. As the soup is enough for 2 servings, I get four meals!! Outstanding and inexpensive meals for one!!! Be good to yourself!!!raf

This dinner was amazing! I've made it twice now and my 8 year old asked for a 3rd serving of the kale! Thanks for sharing!
