A one dish wonder – Chicken & stuffing Bake
In continuing to keep things “cheap & easy” I offer you this recipe for this yummy one dish Chicken & Stuffing bake. You can make it as easy or as complicated as you want, and the flavor is warm, yummy, and just plain comfort food if you ask me!
Lets get started:
Preheat oven to 350
Begin by dicing up some onion. We use about 1/2 of one onion, but your certainly welcome to use more. Cook to your familys tastes and feel free to tweak this and that!
Peel and crush up your garlic cloves. Sautee onion and garlic in some butter. While those are softening up, cut up your chicken to bite sized pieces. Add chicken into the cooking onions and garlic. Now add a dash or two of salt and pepper. (also add your onion and garlic powder in now if you opted to use that instead of the actual veggies) To be honest I added a dash of them myself even though I used the actual veggies!
Cook up your chicken until the middles are no longer pink. Oh, I wanted to show you what type of chicken I used for this. I tried out a different brand and it was OH so flavorful! I don’t know what they put in these breasts but they were lightly sesasoned with somthing so yummy! really made the dish pop even more. I think I paid about six and a half dollars for this bag.
While your chicken is cooking, dump two cans of cream of chicken soup into a bowl. (don’t throw away cans!)
Now fill ONE of the cream of chicken cans with milk, and add to the bowl. (ok, now you can throw away the cans ;)
Wisk it all up so it’s nice and smooth
Now place your cooked chicken into a greased (sprayed) 9×13 pan. (this one was slightly bigger than 9×13 so it doesnt fill it as well)
pour your cream of chicken mixture over the chicken
Now in another bowl pour in your stuffing mix. This is our favorite…
but your welcome to use what ever you prefer. Cornbread stuffing would be good too.
now pour your can of chicken broth into your bowl of stuffing
mix really well until all the bread crumbs are moist
now pour your wet stuffing into the pan and spread out. EASY PEASY!
Now place in the oven on 350 for 40 min. make sure you bake it UNCOVERED so it won’t be a soggy mess!
Now you have a nice crisp layer on the very top of mmm mmm goodness!
Dish up and enjoy! Goes great with veggies and a nice tossed salad. I love mine with some buttered crusty bread (even though theres already technically a starch in the dish, I just LURVE my carbs ;)
Super cheap and easy!!
