Chicken Stuffing Bake
This is a wonderful 1-dish meal that my kids just LOVE! It's so easy that I can make it as soon as I get home from work, and when it's done in the oven, the kids think they've had a wonderful home-cooked meal! Yum! (Oh, by the way, I PREFER to use the Campbell's Cream of Chicken Dijon soup, but I can't find it anymore in Indiana...)

I saw this as an immediate must spruce up recipe as written. With pantry staples, and as much ease, it was a WINNER! I took this to a let's combine chicken and dressing with string bean casserole. Added my seasoning to both chicken and stuffing and soup. I prefer strong spices, think Cumin, crushed black pepper and a lot of toasted garlic. I only used 1 TBP butter (in the stuffing) Cooked in an 8x8 with only 4 thighs (boneless/skinless) Toasted onion rings between the cream of mushroom soup and stuffing layer. Sprayed Pam stuff over stuffing, uncovered. 375 for 45. I added string beans between the thighs of the chicken before loading sauce and stuffing. I look forward to the leftovers!
This tastes just like it's supposed to taste. Seasoned chicken in a sauce/gravy with bits of stuffing around it. It's not haute cuisine, and it really isn't a recipe. There's nothing to cook at all actually. Just mix some convenience foods into a pan and bake it. It reminds me of childhood and I make it maybe twice a year. It's more nostalgia than anything, but it does taste good when you have the craving for some basic comfort food. But don't let it fool you -- homemade stuffing and roast chicken is still way better.
