Chicken and Dressing Casserole



THIS IS OF OF THE BEST REVIEWS FOR THIS RECIPE

“True Southern chicken and dressing recipe. Handed down from my great-great-aunt. Easy and delicious.”

READ THIS BEFORE MAKING IT…. I took advice from other reviews and mine turned out really good. I sauteed the chicken in a little butter and added diced onions and two cloves of garlic to the chicken while cooking to it. I also added some onion powder, salt and pepper. I used the amount of soup called for, but doubled the amount of stuffing and it paid off big time. Be sure to bake it uncovered so the stuffing isn’t soggy. This was really good and I’ll definitely make it again. My kids loved it too.

I did exactly what the recipe said and it didn’t come out right… Came out real soupy so maybe my oven temp is off? Anyhow, I added rice to soak up the mixture and it’s ok.

I made a couple of slight changes some might find helpful- I added some onion and garlic powder to the chicken while it was boiling to help add some flavor. I bought a can of low sodium chicken broth instead of using my own reserves as well. I used 1 can of cream of chicken soup and one can of cream of mushroom. I mixed ALL of the ingredients together (chicken, soups, stuffing, and some extra onion and garlic powder) and apread into baking dish. I put a layer of stuffing I set aside on the top of the mixture so it would have a crispier topping. I also used Pepperidge Farms Seasoned Stuffing Mix, it came out great. I realize I made quite a few alterations, but it came out tasting absolutely wonderful. Thanks for the start!
