HOW TO MAKE Cheesy Chicken Fried Stuffed Shells

Step 1:
Boil 1 box of jumbo pasta shells in heavily salted water. Follow directions as written on box. Set shells aside once cooking is complete. 

Step 2:
Season the chicken breasts with the following:
1 tsp creole seasoning
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp smoked paprika
2 tbsp olive oil

Step 3:
Sauté chicken breasts in butter on both sides. Using a ThermoPro TP511 to check, cook until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C).

Step 4:
Chop chicken breasts into small pieces and add to a bowl with ricotta cheese, shredded mozzarella, and Italian-blend cheese.
Also add:
1 tsp creole seasoning
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
Mix well. 

Step 5:
Mix two large eggs in a bowl.

Step 6:
Add 1 cup of all-purpose flour to a bowl along with:
1 1/2 tbsp creole seasoning
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder 
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp smoked paprika 
Mix well.

Step 7:
Add 1 cup of Italian breadcrumbs to a bowl.

Step 8:
Put a spoonful of chicken mixture in a cooked shell. Cover with another cooked shell and tuck in the ends so that your mixture will stay in.

Step 9:
Coat shells in a successive mixture of flour, eggs, and Italian breadcrumbs. Repeat for each shell. 

Step 10:
Heat vegetable oil in a skillet to 375°F (191°C) and fry shells on both sides until golden brown. Dip in marinara sauce and enjoy! 🥰
