How to Make Ruth Chris Stuffed Chicken
As I mentioned, the cooking process takes just over 30 minutes, and it is pretty simple. In no time, you'll have a restaurant-quality meal on the table that everyone will love!
By the way, this recipe makes enough filling to stuff 2 extra large chicken breasts, or around 4 normal sized ones.
Now, gather all of the ingredients, and let's get to cooking!
Step 1: Preparing the stuffing
Before starting anything, preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit (230°C).
Then, after we’ve got that heating up, we can prepare the stuffing that makes this recipe so darn delicious.
To make it, add the cream cheese with the Worcestershire sauce to a mixing bowl. Then, add the shredded sharp cheddar cheese and ranch seasoning and mix everything until thoroughly combined.
Step 2: Stuffing the chicken breasts
Now that the filling is prepared, it's time to stuff the chicken breasts.
First, slice the chicken breasts lengthwise down the middle and cut it as evenly as possible.
Then stuff half of the filling in between each sliced chicken breast. And you can put toothpicks in the chicken or tie it with a thread to secure the stuffing inside.
Once they're stuffed, mix a little the salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika in a small bowl and sprinkle the mixture on top of each chicken breast.
Step 3: Cooking and serving
By now, the oven should be preheated and ready to go. Line a baking sheet with foil and place the stuffed chicken breasts on top.
Then before you bake the stuffed chicken, put a slab of butter on top of each piece - this is such an underrated addition.
Now, put the chicken in the oven and bake for 30 minutes at 450°F (230°C). The internal temp of the cooked chicken should be 165°F (74°C), so make sure to check it with a thermometer towards the end of cooking.
Finally, serve this Ruth Chris stuffed chicken warm and enjoy!
How to Store Stuffed Chicken
This stuffed chicken is best enjoyed hot out of the oven, and it's so good that you probably won't have any leftovers. But if you do, it will be an excellent option for lunch or dinner the next day!
The best way to store any leftovers is in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3-4 days.
Reheating Stuffed Chicken
An easy and effective way to reheat it is using the oven. To do so, remove the leftover chicken from the fridge and allow it to come to room temperature for a few minutes.
Then transfer the chicken breast to a baking tray, and cover it with foil. Reheat at 325°F for 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the size of the chicken.
Another reheating method is using the stovetop. Use a non-stick pan and heat it over low-medium heat. Then put a tablespoon of butter on the hot pan and place the chicken on it once the butter melts. Make sure to flip the chicken frequently to reheat it evenly.
