Chicken, Green Bean, and Stuffing Casserole


When we are stuck at home with a foot of snow falling outside and more expected over the next few days I want comfort food. Warm, stick to your ribs, casseroles. This was the first one that came to mind as I was looking through the pantry for ingredients.

I usually make Chicken, Green Bean, and Stuffing Casserole by making homemade cream of soup (click for link to recipe) but this time they had cream soup on sale for $.90 a can and I couldn’t pass up the ease of making this casserole with the canned soup.

I was curious if my kids would notice or even care that I made it with canned soup.

Verdict:

All I kept hearing over dinner was how delicious this was. Kind of makes me wonder why I bother making the cream soup substitute. I know it is better for them for me to make the non-canned soup mixture but boy was this easy.

The kids each had two servings and then the leftovers were quickly claimed for lunch the next day.

I served this with a fresh green salad to complete the meal.

  • Servings: ”12″
  • Difficulty: ”easy”
  • Print

Ingredients:

  • 1 (12 oz) bag of cornbread stuffing mix (NOT the red box kind)
  • 1 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • 1/4 butter
  • 3 chicken breasts,raw cubed
  • 2 (10.5 oz) cans Cream of Chicken soup
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (if desired – I prefer it without but the kids like it in)
  • 1 (12 oz) bag green beans, if frozen thawed

Directions:

  1. Prepare stuffing by heating chicken stock and butter in a saucepan to boiling. Remove from heat and add stuffing mix. Stir well and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 13″ x 9″ casserole dish with non-stick spray.
  3. In a large bowl mix chicken breast, soups, milk, cheddar cheese and green beans until well mixed.
  4. Pour chicken mix into the casserole dish and spread evenly over the bottom of the dish. Top with stuffing mix. Pat it down slightly  in the pan.
  5. Bake for 40-45 minutes until stuffing is golden brown and chicken is cooked through. If stuffing is starting to get too brown cover with aluminum foil to finish cooking.
  6. Remove pan from oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.

  5. I make a green chili casserole when ever we go up north and everyone loves it. I cheat and use cream of mushroom soup with tortillas, chicken, onions, and diced green chilies. I will have to try this recipe you posted. Casseroles are great for leftovers too. Thanks for sharing. I know my family will love your recipe.
