Savory Stuffing Topped Chicken

Updated on March 4, 2013
4 stars from 1 rating of Savory Stuffing Topped Chicken

Turning Chicken into Comfort

Jim took chicken out for dinner and I didn't have any ideas what to do with it. Started with a search of the pantry and grabbed what was available. I love stuffing ... had a few boxes of ready-made and decided I would incorporate it into our meal. The result was pretty darn tasty, so I am sharing.

What I love about casseroles is that you can adjust to your tastes or moods. Add different vegetables, change up the soup, or make everything from scratch (which I do when I have time). A recipe is merely a guideline - not written in stone. Have fun! Do what YOU like ... make it yours!

Hope you enjoy!

  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. Prepare stuffing mix according to package directions. Set aside.
  3. Saute chicken in olive oil until lightly browned - I seasoned the chicken with some of the herbs to get the flavor. Remove from pan and add veg and cook about two minutes.
  4. Cube chicken.
  5. In a bowl add cream soup, sour cream, seasonings, chicken, and veg - mix well.
  6. Pour contents of bowl into a lightly greased (this is why I love spray oil!) casserole.
  7. Evenly top with stuffing.
  8. Place in preheated oven and bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
  9. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
