She Cooks {Chicken Stuffing Casserole}

So I'm watching the Grammy's right now and I feel so old. I don't know who 75% of these artists are. I can remember watching it back in the day and my parents walking through the room and they would comment about how they don't know who this person or that person is. And I thought... how do you not?!

Now, I'm feeling that. Is this what getting old feels like? *sigh*

I'm linking up with Carrie at Frugal Foodie Mama today for Marvelous Monday! I was pretty excited when I saw this link up - I was already thinking about doing a recipe post, so it worked out well!


This is one of my go-to recipes. It's one of those comfort foods that just always hits the spot. My mom used to make this all the time growing up - it just takes me back. I like those kind of recipes. Plus, it's beyond easy. I'll forewarn ya, it's not the healthiest meal - but damn is it good. And sometimes, that's just the kind of dinner you need. Right?

Chicken Stuffing Casserole

2 cups shredded, cooked chicken
1 box chicken flavored stuffing
1 can condensed cream of chicken soup
2 c. {1 bag} cheddar cheese {mild or sharp}
salt/pepper/garlic to taste

Serves: 4

Preheat oven to 350. 
Coat an 8x8 casserole dish with cooking spray.

You can prepare the chicken however you'd like, I usually throw it in a pot and boil until done then shred it. I don't usually think about preparing the chicken ahead of time when I make this - oops. 

Follow the directions on the stuffing box to make the stuffing, set aside when finished. 

In a mixing bowl; combine the cream of chicken soup and 3/4 bag of cheese. I season this mixture with salt, pepper, and garlic. 

Once all 3 parts of ready it's time to build your casserole. First dump all of the stuffing into the dish, then place the shredded chicken over that to cover, then spoon the cheese/soup mixture over the top and smooth it out as if you were frosting a cake. 

Throw that baby in the oven for about 20 minutes. Then pull it out and sprinkle the remaining cheese over top then pop back into the oven for another 10-15 minutes or until it's starting to brown and bubbly. 

Now comes the important part... DEVOUR. 

And because the stuffing wasn't enough carbs, I added some bread tonight. Eh, ya only live once. ;)
What's your favorite comfort food recipe?
