Description: 

A quick and easy casserole of dressing and chicken, remniscent of Thanksgiving dinner but practical enough to make weekly!

Yield: 

8 servings

Ingredients: 

3 cups cooked cubed chicken pieces
2 cans (15 ounces each) cream of chicken soup*
2 cans (15 ounces each) chicken broth**
8 ounces chicken stuffing mix***
1/2 cup butter, melted

Instructions: 

1. Combine dry stuffing mix with the melted butter, stirring to coat.

2. Whisk together the cream of chicken soup and the chicken broth.

3. Grease a 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Spoon 1/3 of stuffing mixture into bottom of pan. Sprinkle with 1/2 of the chicken and cover with 1/2 of the soup mixture. Repeat layers, and finish with the final 1/3 of the stuffing mix.

4. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Remove from refrigerator 30-60 minutes before baking.

5. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes, until hot and top is browned.

Additional Notes: 

*I make my own soup mixture, to avoid the MSG.

**I either use chicken broth saved from a previous cooked chicken, or make my own using bouillon and hot water.

***I substitute 3 cups of homemade stuffing mix, again, to avoid the MSG.

Preparation Time: 

15 minutes

Cooking Time: 

35 minutes

Tammy's Review: 

This is a great meal, and super-easy. It's tasty, and can be made ahead of time, which means it's great for busy days. It's almost as good as having roasted chicken, gravy, and stuffing... with a whole lot fewer dishes at the end. My rating: 9/10

Delicious!

First, I must confess that I took several shortcuts on this one. Which, admittedly, felt like cheating since the recipe was easy as it was. I didn't have a deep enough pan or short enough pan to layer it properly. The long pan was too long and my short pan wasn't deep enough. So, I didn't really layer it. Instead, I spread the stuffing on the bottom of the pan, topped it with the chicken, and poured the soup mix over that. I, also, didn't bother cutting the chicken (except for my mother, who can't chew well) as I was feeling too lazy. Neither of those things damaged the recipe any! The soup was soupy enough to reach the stuffing below and cook it properly and both chicken and stuffing absorbed the flavor. I'm not much of a chicken person (I'll eat it, but only to vary my diet), but even I loved the way the chicken tasted in this one. I think next time I'll use homemade stuffing and soup, as mine was a bit high in MSG. But my cupboards are running low and I wanted something that didn't require too much. This is the perfect recipe to use at the end of the month, when everything needs stocking.

Totally Delicious

You are right this is a great meal and super easy, and is totally delicious.
I did not use 3 cups of chicken as it is just my hubby and myself. I however used about 1 1/2 cups cubed chicken breast which I shredded a bit in my chopper. I added diced mushrooms to the chicken. I used a small loaf of white bread (diced).I also used your condensed chicken soup recipe for layering this. It was so good and also very pretty. I have already added this to my google meal calendar and reviewing your site on my blog. Thanks again and a bunch.

Another winner!!

I made this last night and everyone loved it! I wasn't sure how they would react because I used to make a similar version using boxed stuffing and canned soup. They said this was better. I used the cream of chicken soup recipe from this site and the bread crumbs recipe also from Tammy's recipes using my saved bread scraps of Amish White bread. A very tasty, economical and satisfying meal. I will definitely make this again. Staci

This is one of our favorite dishes! Sometimes I top it with swiss cheese, my husband especially likes it this way!

ooops

Ok so mine turned out a little soupy...I don't know what I did wrong. Since I live with three hungry guys it didn't matter...there was none left for me! My hubby said it was like soup with bread in it! So I added a little too much soup. I will try adding a lot less next time but hey they LOVED it anyway! So far I have been a hit with all these new recipes...if I could only make them look like the pictures!
Shorty

ps-I made mine with left over turkey:)

I tried this again and made it with chicken and homemade cream of chicken soup. I also added more stuffing. They LOVED it yet again! It is a keeper!!
