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! 🥰
