Chicken and Stuffing Casserole

I love casseroles, a lot. My husband used to think that they are gross and evil, but he is slowly coming around. However, there was no convincing him to give this a try because it contains chicken. Some day he might decide chicken isn't totally scary and terrible, but it won't be anytime soon!

This recipe comes from Betty Crocker's Just the Two of Us cookbook. It will be just the one of me this time though.


This is another one of those recipes where you probably have most of the ingredients already, so it should come together pretty easily for you. You need corn bread stuffing, chicken, cream of chicken soup, frozen veggies, milk, onion, sage, paprika and of course salt and pepper.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and lets start cooking!

chopped chicken
Chop up your cooked chicken.

Chop up your onion. My mother in law really doesn't like onions, its baffling to me. Anyone else out there not like these tasty little guys?

In a sauce pan over medium high heat bring the soup, milk, veggies, onion and sage to a boil while stirring.

stir in the chicken
Stir in the chicken and the stuffing mix, this is really as complex as this recipe gets.

in Pyrex
Pour it into a greased casserole dish, of course I am using Pyrex. Sprinkle on some pepper and paprika. Bake it for about 15 minutes and you are ready to eat.

This was really good, but I put in too much sage. I will make this again though because the flavors and textures were great and I love how simple it is for a weekday meal.


  1. Hey, just wanted to say that I really like your blog! I am always looking for good recipes for one or two people. I also love your pyrex dishes!

  2. Looking away from the onions! yep, can't stand them, and one of the first questions I asked my now husband (well, 12 years ago!) was "do you like onions?" He said "ew" and that sealed the deal. :D

    Sadly, I sheilded my daughter from onions her whole life. Until the age of 12. She went to a sleep over, they ordered a veggie pizza with onions. Not to be rude, she ate a slice.

    I picked her up the next day and she ran to the car screaming "I love onions!"

    Now, at almost 20 years old, its not uncommon for me to come home and she's at the stove. Sauteeing onions in a bit of butter. She'll turn off the heat and just eat them out of the skillet.

    I really don't know where I went wrong with that child. :D

  3. Oops - I spelled shielded wrong! Best secretary ever! :D

  4. Scared of casseroles! Sacrilege. I LOVE casseroles. And i LOVE stuffing. This sounds awesome.

  5. I am with your mother in law... onion is OK, if well cooked and buried in something... but lightly sauteed or raw is too strong...

  6. I absolutely love onions. Even raw diced ones. Mmmm raw diced onions on a taco.... I am starving now!
