While I enjoy cooking dinner, I am no snob when it comes to using a few shortcuts from the store. This mama has a lot going on.
The other day I was craving some serious comfort food. It's been kind of rainy and dreary and just the kind of weather where you want something like a casserole, you know what I mean?
Anyway, I remembered this dish I made way back when and thought "wow, I really should update those pictures on the blog". So I adjusted a few things in the recipe and took new pictures.
In order to make this casserole as easy and quickly as possible, I'm using the shortcut of boxed stuffing mix, jarred gravy and rotisserie chicken. How easy is that?
But does it taste good?
Well, my answer to that is, last night our oldest daughter had a night class. After she came home, I found her cleaning a big plateful of the Chicken & Stuffing Casserole. I looked at her weird. I looked at her like that because
A. She doesn't like stuffing
B. She doesn't care for gravy
She looked at me and said "this is really good". I asked her if she liked stuffing now and she said "no but I like this".
So is it good? I'd say it's better than good if a person who doesn't like stuffing can devour a huge serving of it.
Quick Note: I served green beans along side our Chicken and Stuffing Casserole. However, if you prefer you could add beans right into the casserole.
Chicken and Stuffing Casserole
- 2 T butter
- 1 C diced onion
- 2 celery stalks diced
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- 2 C chicken cooked & chopped (rotisserie works well)
- 18 oz chicken gravy
- 2 C stuffing prepared
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Melt butter in skillet over medium heat. Once butter is melted add onion and celery to skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally until just starting to soften, about 5-6 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in chicken and gravy. Continue to cook, just until warm; about 2-3 minutes.
- Spray an 8x8 or 9x9 baking dish with non-stick spray or rub with butter. Pour chicken mixture into baking dish. Top with stuffing.
- Cover with foil and bake 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 10-15 minutes uncovered.
