Milford Valley, Milford, Ind., developed new stuffed chicken minis for its retail chicken product line. Milford Valley stuffed minis

These ready-to-cook products are a miniature version of Milford Valley’s chicken entrées that feature raw, breaded chicken breast meat stuffed with fillings. The stuffed minis come in Cordon Swiss (filled with ham and cheese), Buffalo Style (filled with seasoned cream cheese) and Jalapeño (filled with spicy cream cheese).

“We saw growth in the product category in our foodservice side, so bringing the chicken minis to retail made sense,” says Carmen Darland, marketing director. “The flavor profile appeals to a younger demographic, and the product’s smaller size saves time in the kitchen with faster cooking times than larger, traditional chicken entrées.”

The Buffalo Style and Jalapeño chicken minis, which are both stick-shaped, are available in 20-ounce retail packaged boxes, and the Cordon Swiss comes in a 24-ounce box, all for a suggested retail price of $7.99-8.99 per box.
