Chicken and Dressing Casserole

This is a family favorite in my home. Okay, we have a LOT of family favorites, but that’s okay. I like it when I find dishes that everyone likes. Starting with tender, cooked chicken breasts, adding a creamy sour cream sauce, and then topped with a prepared, seasoned stuffing, this makes a wonderful, tasty main dish.

 

This casserole goes together fairly quickly, once your chicken breasts have been cooked; and there is plenty of time to toss a salad or prepare side dishes while it bakes. This can even be made in a crock pot with good results.

This recipe calls for a box of packaged stuffing mix, and I would not suggest making it with “homemade” stuffing as the results will be less than stellar. I do not usually buy packaged foods like this because they are usually expensive and nutritionally inferior, but I make an exception for this recipe!  My discount grocer carries the Stove Top mixes at a great price during November and December. I stock up then and put them in my freezer where they keep just fine for up to a year.

This dish fed four of us tonight, and there is plenty left over for lunch tomorrow.

CHICKEN AND DRESSING CASSEROLE

4 cooked chicken breasts
1 can creamy chicken mushroom soup (This is sometimes hard to find, but worth the hunt.  Cream of Mushroom is an okay replacement.)
8 ounces sour cream
1 package Stove Top chicken flavor stuffing mix
8 ounces chicken broth

Cut up chicken breasts into bite-sized chunks.  (I cut mine into fairly large bites!)  Spread cut up  chicken in bottom of an 8 x 8 casserole dish.  Combine soup and sour cream.  Spread over chicken.  Sprinkle the dry dressing and seasoning evenly over the top.  Pour chicken broth over all.  Cover with foil and bake at 375° for 45 minutes.

  • Oh yummy! This is DEFINITELY a favorite around here too! :sunny:

  • Hello!

    You have such wonderful wonderful recipes!  I have tried 3 so far with good results.  I tried the double decker grilled cheese, and they were a huge hit!  I also tried the cherokee chicken, and it was also a hit.  Except for my 7yo, but I think he was being contrary!  Oh, I forgot I also tried the stroganoff meatballs, I think I did them wrong, but they still liked it!  I at least did the meatballs right, I just did the sauce wrong, which supports your point that it is the meatballs, not the sauce!  I may need to make up a batch of those meatballs and throw them in a pot of spaghetti sauce!  I also tried the cherry jello pie.  It was also a hit!  I am thinking of adding this chicken stuffing casserole to my list for my next shopping trip.  It sounds delish!  Something like what my mom used to cook, but she didn’t put the soup or sour cream in it.  So, I will definitely have to try this!

    Thanks so much for your wonderful recipes!  And I may try out your wonderful idea of making a coffee cake for Sunday.  I have already incorporated wild dinners into my Sunday fare.  Great idea!  The coffee cakes would solve the breakfast problem, and give us a nice dessert to snack on after the wild dinners!

  • This recipe sounds delicious!
    I loved seeing the pictures of your poolside retreat. Very inviting!

  • I have a very similar recipe, and YES it is a winner! In fact, I haven’t made it in a while. :shysmile: I think it needs to go on a menu soon! 🙂

  • I pulled this up and made it tonight. The family loves it.
    Hubby and I had to get the cranberry sauce out. LOL
    My son (picky eater) even had 2 plates of it.
    I did add one thing. I tossed some corn in on top
    of the chicken before adding everything else. It
    was a real one pot dish and so good.

    Thanks:goodjob:
