This is a very versatile recipe. It calls for cream of mushroon soup but I make it with cream of chicken or cream of celery. It calls for mixed vegetables but I have made it with frozen corn, or green beans or peas. I use 2 boxes of stuffing mix because we like lots of stuffing.
- Set oven at 375F.
- Mix stuffing according to instructions and set aside (do not cook)
- Place chicken in 13X9 inch baking dish, or casserole dish.
- Top with vegetables.
- Mix soup and sour cream, pour over chicken.
- Top with stuffing Bake for 45 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
- Make-Ahead: Assemble recipe as directed: cover.
- Refrigerate overnight.
- When ready to to serve, bake at 375F for 55 minutes or until chicken is done.
I won't rate this, because I had cooked chicken that I was using for another recipe, and ended up using this recipe instead (and used the cooked chicken). The taste was pretty good, but in following the instructions, I can't figure out what to do with the butter and water, since the recipe says follow package directions for the stuffing. For my tastes, I think doubling the sauce would make it better.
This ranks among the best of the many chicken casserole recipes I have made. The chicken bakes up moist and tender, but the best part is the crisp stuffing on top! The sauce with the vegetables and stuffing would make a good dish without the chicken! I used 5 breasts weighing about 1 3/4 lbs, and it did not cover the bottom of the 13X9 pan so I will use smaller pan next time. I also had to bake @ 45 minutes! I used cream of mushroom soup, sour cream, and the Stove Top for Chicken. Thanks Dorel for such a great recipe!
While DH and I liked this, the rest of the family did not. The chicken stays nice and moist but the stuffing on top got a little too dried out and crunchy.
