Cornbread stuffing mix as a breading is very versatile and can add crunch as well as color to oven baked items with very little fat. It browns much better than panko, which is really designed for deep frying. And it has far better crunchiness than toasted bread crumbs. So in the end, the crushed stuffing mix might well be the obvious choice for items like baked chicken strips.

Children love them and they are really good for weeknight eating. Adults can easily top a salad with them for a healthy main dish salad meal.
