As much as we enjoy cooking new and exciting meals, sometimes it’s nice to just make a simple dinner. This one-dish Chicken and Stuffing Casserole can be dinner by itself, or you can serve it with a vegetable or two on the side. Either way, this is one of the quickest, easiest dishes you’ll find when you’re looking for a warm meal on a cold day.
This casserole recipe also allows you to use any kind of shredded chicken you like, from home-cooked to canned. You can even substitute another meat that fits with the other ingredients. Leftover turkey at Thanksgiving would make a great adjustment to the recipe! As with all our recipes, make it your own and enjoy!
