  1. In a medium bowl combine the cream cheese, onion, parsley, dill, garlic and lemon pepper. Add crabmeat and mix thoroughly. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover and chill in refrigerator (can be prepared 2 hours ahead).
  2. Using a small sharp knife, cut in half horizontally through the center of each chicken breast half, creating a pocket. Fill each pocket with 1/4 of the crab stuffing. Then dip each chicken piece into flour, eggs and finally bread crumbs to coat. Cover completely.
  3. In a large skillet melt butter or margarine with oil over medium heat. Add filled, breaded chicken breast halves to skillet and saute until golden brown and cooked through (juices run clear), about 10 minutes each side. Remove from skillet, drain on paper towels and serve.

I tried the oven method that was recommended and was disappointed. This recipe was boring and bland. Not for someone who cooks and experiments a lot.

Great recipe. Here's how I changed it to cut some fat and some cost. I scaled the recipe for 6 servings and used a 6 oz. can of fancy white crabmeat which was less than $4 a can. It worked re...

I made this recipe last night and it was a huge hit! For the filling, I just coarsly chopped an onion, took a handful of fresh parsley and dill and the cream cheese and put it into my little mi...

This was good - and I baked it instead of Frying it. I baked it at 375 for about 40 minutes - couldn't have been better!

I loved this recipe! I kept the chicken semi-frozen when I cut the chicken to form pockets. The chicken then thawed and I stuffed the cream cheese & crab mixture (which I did double.) I also ...

I have made this recipe 3 times now.......It is WONDERFUL! I've even just made the stuffing & used it for an appetizer served with crackers.....yummy
