The need for something warm and comforting like chicken and dressing casserole the very next evening.  Spring in Utah suffers from some serious rapid cycling bipolar disorder!

So, in an effort to cope with Spring’s mood swing in the form of a winter storm that has blasted us here in Utah, I made one of my favorite dinners, Chicken and Dressing Casserole.  It has the flavors that remind me about the best of home cooking: chicken and stuffing and gravy.  This casserole is super easy to make, especially if you use a rotisserie chicken.  As I have said before, I like the chickens at Costco.  They are fat and juicy and cost the same as the raw chickens, so I have nothing to lose and everything to gain by buying them already roasted.  They are tender and flavorful.  Buy several chickens while you are at the store, then simply de-bone them when you get home and freeze the meat for future use.  So simple.

Chicken and Dressing Casserole

Ingredients

  • 4 cups cooked chicken, diced
  • 1 (6 ounce) package chicken flavored stuffing mix (I used Stove Top)
  • 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of chicken soup (I used Campbell's Healthy Request)
  • 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of celery soup (I used Campbell's 98% Fat Free)
  • 1 cup chicken broth or stock
  • 1 cup milk (I used skim because it is what I had on hand.)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350-degrees F.
  2. Lightly butter a 2-quart casserole dish. Place chicken in bottom of dish. Sprinkle the dry stuffing mix over the chicken.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together the cream of chicken soup and the cream of celery soup. Add the chicken broth or stock and the milk. Mix well. Pour soup mixture evenly over the stuffing.
  4. Bake 20 minutes covered with foil. Remove foil and bake an additional 10 minutes or until this middle of the casserole is bubbling. Allow to cool for 10 minutes prior to serving.
