Chicken and Stuffing Bake

StumbleUponFacebookShare

The other night, it was hot and I was tired, but dinner does not seem to cook itself so I looked at our menu and nothing was looking good. I then looked through the cupboards and came up with an idea.

Out of that idea Chicken and Stuffing Bake was created, and my family has added another dish to our list of favorites (well 3 out off 5 of us, which is a hit for our house of ultra picky eaters).

My family loved it just as is served up with a side of veggies and salad, but I am thinking you could add in some chopped celery and onions for a bit more flavor if you wish.

  1. we make something very similar. . .it is one of my favorite comfort foods!

  2. I have made something like this with canned soup. I like your version because I don’t always have the right soup on hand. I don’t know if I would have thought of using parmesan -bet that gives is a good flavor.

      The parmesan did add flavor, and I use the butter, flour, milk and broth combo all the time as a replacement for creme of chicken soup.

  3. This look like a great dish. I have made a similar casserole with leftover chicken, stuffing and gravy. I will have to give this recipe a try.

  4. This looks yummy! I would love for you to link up with me every Wednesday at http://www.firsthomelovelife.com/2012/06/features-and-whats-cooking-wednesday-5.html

  5. This recipe was a real hit…a few additions I made….I added about one cup of canned corn to the cooked stuffing mixture to stretch the meal….and a few drops of gravy master to color up and favor the gravy. After I lined the casserole with the chicken, I sprinkled drained, canned mushrooms over it. I served it with a spoonful of cranberry sauce!
