Crab Louie Stuffed Chicken #SundaySupper

Crab Louie also known as Crab Louis is one of my favorite crab dishes. Traditional Crab Louis is made with Pacific Northwest Dungeness Crab. I use lump crabmeat and sometimes even special.
Chicken Stuffed Crab Louie
I usually make this as a salad and stuff a tomato with it. This week’s Sunday Supper invited us to stuff, roll and wrap our dinner contribution. The stuffed tomato version is a great lunch or brunch meal. I needed to kick it up a notch for dinner. Stuffed chicken sounded like a natural choice. Moist lump crabmeat in a slightly sweet and spicy sauce, cradled in a chicken breast and baked.
It turned out to be a great choice!
Fill breasts and tuck ends underneath, Add oil to baking dish. Place breasts stuffed side down. Season with salt, pepper and paprika. Sprinkle with onions.

    If you only knew how much I love crab. I think I could eat it every single day. Great inspiration to put it in chicken. It sure does elevate regular chicken to a whole new level.
