Think stuffing is just for Thanksgiving? Think again. Delicious stuffing should be enjoyed year-round, and this chicken and stuffing casserole from The Cookin’ Chicks is the perfect way to satisfy your craving.
Unlike your Turkey Day feast, this meal comes together pretty quickly. It takes just 10 minutes of prep time and 30 minutes of cook time, so you’ll be enjoying a comforting, hearty casserole in a jiffy.
It consists of only a few simple and affordable ingredients, including Stove Top stuffing, chicken breasts and frozen veggies. And it’s so tasty that even picky eaters won’t be able to resist it! Seriously, how delicious does that golden-brown crunchy top look?
Aside from being easy to make, the dish is such a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. Once you try it, chances are you’ll want to make it a permanent part of your weekday dinner rotation.
If you’re looking for a slightly different take on a chicken stuffing casserole, check out this recipe from The Seasoned Mom. Although it can be a meal all on its own, Blair, the blogger behind The Seasoned Mom, suggests that her version could also stand in as a great side dish at a potluck or other dinner party.
Want to make this one-pot meal even easier? Grab a cooked rotisserie chicken from the grocery store rather than cook one yourself.
This casserole also freezes well. So, you can feel free to prepare it ahead of time and save it for later. Your future self will thank you. After all, what’s better than coming home after a long day at work and knowing dinner is all ready to be popped into the oven?
You can even make a version of this recipe in a slow cooker. This recipe from the Country Cook incorporates green beans, which is a convenient way to sneak in some veggies to those who usually refuse to eat anything green.
The blogger also suggests using the cream-based soup of your choice, whether that’s cream of onion, potato, mushroom or celery.
Here’s another version from Spicy Southern Kitchen, which uses cream of chicken soup, butter, milk and mayo for its sauce. It involves a few more ingredients and a bit more chopping because it doesn’t use a frozen vegetable mix.
The fresh mushrooms, celery and onions surely give it a great flavor, and blogger Christin Mahrlig prefers the Pepperidge Farm brand of stuffing. It also sounds delicious and takes just 40 minutes altogether.
Of course, you could always substitute turkey for the chicken if you wanted to evoke the flavors of Thanksgiving or use this recipe to get rid of leftovers. It’s easy and convenient if you use certain shortcuts that won’t reduce flavor but will definitely save you some time.
When you smell the aromas of this comforting dinner coming from your oven or slow cooker, you won’t want to wait to dig in!
