🥘 INGREDIENTS

Chicken stuffing casserole is made even easier when you use dried stuffing mix! It’s super flavorful and you don’t have to worry about cutting up your own bread.

*Be sure to see the recipe card below for ingredients, amounts & instructions!*

Chicken stuffing casserole ingredients.
  • 6 ounces Stuffing Mix – This is about 1 ¾ cups of dried stuffing mix! I love stuffing in this recipe because it’s full of the delicious flavor we all love! I prefer cubed stuffing mix for this, but you can also use traditional.
  • 1 ¼ cup Water – This should be heated to boiling so it moistens the stuffing mix. You can also use chicken broth or stock here for extra flavor.
  • 2 tablespoons Butter – This is optional but recommended if you’d like a little extra flavor in your stuffing. It should be melted if you decide to add it!
  • 2 cups Chicken Breast – You can use chicken thighs here if you prefer! They should be cooked and shredded or diced (See Tips & Recipe Notes)
  • ½ cup Sour Cream – Sour cream makes the casserole so creamy and delicious!
  • 1 can Cream of Chicken Soup (10.5 Ounces condensed soup) – This easy sauce base will be added to the casserole to make it creamy and add loads of chicken flavor.
  • 3 cups Mixed Vegetables – These should be thawed to make sure the casserole doesn’t get watered down!
  • ½ teaspoon Each Salt & Pepper – You can just add this to taste—this is the seasoning base for the casserole.
  • ¼ teaspoon Garlic Powder – This will give extra flavor to the casserole!
  • ¼ teaspoon Onion Powder – Onion powder also gives extra flavor to the casserole! I like to use onion powder, but you can also use granulated onion.

🔪 STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS

Chicken stuffing casserole is a flavor-packed weeknight casserole that takes just 30 minutes to put together!

1
  1. Prep. Start by preheating your oven to 400°F (205°C),then lightly grease your 9×13 baking pan or casserole dish. Set aside while you prepare the casserole.
  2. Make stuffing. To make your stuffing, start by heating 1 ¼ cups of water until boiling (on the stovetop, using an electric kettle, or using a microwave on high power for about 2 minutes). Then, combine 6 ounces of stuffing mix, the hot water, and optional 2 tablespoons of melted butter. When fully mixed, set aside.
  3. Mix the casserole. To your prepared baking dish, add the remaining ingredients: 2 cups of cooked, shredded chicken, ½ cup of sour cream, 10.5 ounces of cream of chicken condensed soup (1 can), 3 cups thawed mixed vegetables, and ½ teaspoon of salt and pepper, and ¼ teaspoon of garlic and onion powder. Mix everything well and put it into your prepared baking dish. Then, top with the stuffing mixture and spread completely to the edges.
  4. Bake and serve. Place the casserole in the middle of your center rack and bake at 400°F (205°C) for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the sauce is hot and bubbling around the edges. Serve immediately and enjoy!

My creamy, delicious Chicken Stuffing Casserole is served perfectly for dinner on its own or with a tasty cheese roll to soak up all that sauce! Since the casserole has veggies, there’s no need to make any extra sides—it’s a perfectly well-rounded meal!

💭 ANGELA’S TIPS & RECIPE NOTES

  • Use a rotisserie chicken to make this meal even easier! Picking the meat from a rotisserie chicken will not only make this meal extremely easy to throw together—it’ll also make sure the chicken is perfectly tender and flavorful! You can also use leftover chicken or turkey for the casserole.
  • You can use any canned condensed cream soup for this casserole! Cream of chicken is one of my favorites, but cream of mushroom, cream of onion, or even cream of bacon work well!
  • Set the vegetables in the fridge overnight to thaw quickly or use the sink! Run the bag of vegetables under running warm water to thaw them out quickly. Be sure to remove any excess water before adding to the casserole to make sure it doesn’t water down the dish.

🥡 STORING & REHEATING

If you happen to have leftovers of this amazing casserole, either transfer them to an airtight container or cover with a layer of plastic cling film or aluminum foil. When stored properly, the casserole will last for about 3 to 4 days in the fridge!

FREEZING

Casseroles tend to freeze well – but casseroles with dairy, not so much! Your best bet is to mix the separate parts: the chicken and vegetables and then the stuffing mixture.

When you’re ready to make the dish, let the other ingredients thaw in your fridge overnight and then make the cream sauce. Proceed with the rest of the baking above and you’ll have a casserole ready in half the time!

REHEATING LEFTOVER CHICKEN CASSEROLE

In my opinion, the best way to reheat this yummy casserole is in the oven! This way, the stuffing can get crispy again on top and the creamy chicken is evenly reheated.

You’ll want to preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and then put the casserole in the oven for about 20 to 30 minutes, or until it’s fully reheated! If the casserole looks like it’s over-browning or drying out, put on a sheet of aluminum foil to help protect the dish.

Should I use cubed stuffing or traditional for the casserole?

I prefer to use cubed stuffing for this recipe because it holds up well and has a bit more structure than traditional stuffing! You can use whatever is your preference, however – both will be delicious!

What’s cream of chicken soup?

Condensed cream of chicken soup is a thick, flavorful condensed soup typically made from chicken stock and cream! It’s a great way to make an easy sauce and it’s super versatile! You can make your own cream of chicken – but using the canned stuff makes dinner come together faster and more easily!

This chicken recipe can also be a crockpot dinner, but I actually prefer the texture of it baked. As the stuffing has a firmer texture. If cooked in the crockpot it can make the stuffing a bit soggy.

Ingredients For Casserole

Chicken – You will want to use boneless chicken that you dice up. You can use white or dark meat or do a mix of it if you prefer. Cube the chicken into 1 inch pieces.

Condensed Soup – You can substitute cream of mushroom soup, cream of celery, etc. Feel free to use whatever condensed soup you prefer. We like the chicken as it enhances a natural rich chicken flavor of the dish.

Sour Cream – I love the creamy and tangy feature this sour cream adds to the casserole.

Stuffing – I used Stovetop chicken stuffing but you can use any flavor of stuffing you prefer.

Chicken Broth – chicken or even a bone broth works great. This is going to help add flavor to stuffing and keep your dish moist.

  • Use turkey instead of chicken.
  • You can use pre-cooked leftover chicken or turkey in replace of raw chicken.
  • Add in some frozen veggies or even corn to mix in with the chicken. Stir in a can of medley of vegetables to make it a complete meal. Or do a can of corn, green beans, etc. Just drain the canned vegetables first. Or use frozen.
  • Use homemade condensed soup instead of canned if you prefer.
  • You can use a vegetable broth, chicken bouillon or better than bouillon paste in replace of chicken broth. It helps to create a creamy chicken filling while adding extra flavor to the dish, instead of just plain water.
