Easy Chicken & Dressing Casserole

Recently, I cooked up a batch and a half of this chicken and dressing casserole. We had some for supper, and I took the half-batch to my niece that had given birth to an adorable baby girl. I delivered it frozen and she was able to pop it into the oven when she needed something for supper.

I’m not real sure how people do things up North, but here in the South, when someone dies, or has a baby, or gets hurt, or has a surgery, we prepare food for the family and take it to them.

Taking food to folks is something I like to do when I have a few minutes, but sometimes a few minutes is all I have and this chicken and dressing casserole doesn’t take that long to prepare. 

Easy Chicken & Dressing Casserole

These are your ingredients…

  • Whole chicken or 3 – 4 chicken breasts
  • 2 Boxes Chicken Stuffing (reserve 1/3 for topping)
  • 1-2 sticks of real butter (1 works, 2 makes it better)
  • 16 oz. Sour Cream
  • 2 cans Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 1 can chicken broth or leftover broth from cooking
  • Mushrooms (optional)

Directions

Boil the chicken until it’s done, then shred it into bite-sized pieces. Preheat your oven to 400°. Melt the butter, sour cream, and soup together in a stockpot. Remove the stockpot from the heat, add in the stuffing, reserving 1/3 for the topping, and mix well.

Spray a 9×13 baking dish with oil to prevent sticking. Layer the stuffing mixture and chicken, beginning with the stuffing mixture, until ingredients are gone. If you wish to add mushrooms, you’d mix them with the chicken. End with the stuffing mixture. Sprinkle dry, reserved stuffing on top of the casserole. Pour chicken broth evenly over the casserole, as needed. (I use a butter knife to make holes for the broth to run into. You may not need the entire can of broth. The casserole doesn’t need to look dry when you put it into the oven.)

Bake for 30-45 minutes, depending on your oven, or when the casserole bubbles around the edges. (When all of my ingredients are warm, it only takes about 30 minutes.) This dish freezes well, but baking time will need to be adjusted accordingly. When frozen, bake at 350° for 1 – 1 1/2 hours. Test the center to see if it is hot before serving.

This is another one of our favorite large family, kid-friendly meals. The kids don’t turn this down and will usually ask for seconds.

Steamed California Medley veggies with Easy Peasy Cheese Sauce pairs very well with this casserole.
