Chicken_Stuffed_FrenchBreadYou all may have noticed I love using french bread for easy meals. My Taco French Bread Pizza and Stuffed French Bread have become staples in our monthly dinner rotation. It’s so easy to buy a loaf from the store then stuff it with all things delicious. 🙂

This Chicken Stuffed French Bread turned out amazing! Packed full of flavor with the chicken, ranch dressing, loads of cheese and green onion. It really is so yummy and perfect for a simple and quick weeknight dinner!Chicken_Stuffed

    1. If you’re not a fan of ranch dressing you could sub the ranch dressing for Greek yogurt and mix in a packet flavoring of your choice or your own seasoning mix. I did that and it still turned out great!!

      1. Directions state to spread on one half and top with other bread then bake. Do you bake as one sandwich or as two halves open face style?

  1. This was great! I made a few modifications to the recipe because my family is onion free. I eliminated the green onIons, reduced the ranch and added about half a can of cream of mushroom soup. I was in a pinch for time so I used rotisserie chicken. Everyone loved it. I’ll definitely make this again. Thanks for the idea.

  2. we are going to make this tonight, we don’t have ranch available, but we have leftover homemade Alfredo sauce 🙂 and we are having homemade potato wedges with it (i know, super not healthy!)

  3. Do you have suggested crockpot recipe for a bland shredded chicken recipe that could be used for these sandwiches?

    Or what about throwing all the ingredients ( uncooked chicken breasts) in the slow cooker. Would the ranch be enough liquid?

    1. I would just cook some chicken in the crock pot with salt and pepper and a little chicken broth. Cook on low about 4 to 5 hours. 🙂 Hope this helps!

  4. Try adding Curry powder. Use half mayo & half plain yogurt. This is the best chicken salad I’ve found.

  5. Mmm mmm! This looks so yummy and fresh! I am working on a round up for my blog and would love to feature this with a link back and photo, I just know my readers would LOVE it! Can’t wait to give it a try and throw it into my picnic basket!

    1. The recipe card states to use 1 pound cooked shredded chicken. So you can use a cooked rotisserie chicken, or bake your own chicken then shred it before using it in the recipe. 🙂

  6. I had to laugh when I saw this, an updated version of a dish from one of my favorite books “Suds In Your Eye” by Mary Lasswell, which tells the story of 3 elderly women in wartime San Diego as they end up moving in together to get around the high rents one woman faces and the obnoxious adult children of the other. Mrs. Rasmussen is the cook of the group and her recipe Fried Chicken Loaf is basically a sourdough roll (day old, of course, they scrimped and saved to get by, and to buy cold beer) with the center pulled out and buttered, then stuffed with fried chicken. Well, it was 1943… This sounds a bit better to eat, but the story is a fun one to read.

  7. Hi, I seen your recipe on Pinterest and I’m going to make it tonight for dinner but my question to you is when you say cook the chicken breast are you talking about boiling the chicken breast or frying or baking it?
