- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/4 cup cornmeal
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon hot water

- In a food processor, grind contents of stuffing box into a fine powder.
- In a gallon zipper bag, combine stuffing powder, flour, and cornmeal.
- In a shallow dish, place the butter and heat it on high in the microwave just until melted. Add hot water and stir together. Add eggs and whisk to combine.
- Add a few pieces of chicken to the gallon bag and toss to coat the chicken. Shake off excess crumbs and transfer chicken to the egg mixture. Move the chicken back to the crumb bag to coat once more.
- Place the chicken on the lined baking sheet and arrange flat so it cooks evenly.
- Repeat these steps until all chicken is coated with crumbs, egg, and crumbs again.

- Remove from oven and serve warm with your favorite veggies and dip.
