There a lot of things I didn't like as a kid but ate because it was what we had...canned soup and Hamburger Helper to name a few. But I always loved the Stove Top stuffing. My mom made it as a side dish to chicken or pork chops a lot and I've never gotten sick of it. I was not deterred at all when I found a recipe that utilizes Stove Top. This is very reminiscent of a recipe I would have made 5 years ago. I did a lot of casseroles and a lot of "cream of" soups. I have strayed away from that, but do love it on occasion. It just tastes like childhood and I'm sure a lot of folks would agree with me there!

The original recipe called for swiss cheese, but literally none of us will touch that, so I went the spicy route with pepperjack chicken. This meal was absolute comfort food and my whole family loved it. I decided since I was serving it up over pasta to cut the cooked chicken up. I scooped some of the pan goodness on top too. It was just a wonderful meal. I used chicken flavored stuffing, but really would love to test it out with cornbread stuffing and savory herbs  stuffing too (maybe with mozzarella with the latter).

(Print)
What you need:
  • Boneless skinless chicken breasts (I believe I did 6)
  • 6 to 8 slices of Pepperjack cheese
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 box Stove Top chicken stuffing (I want to try this recipe with the cornbread and savory herbs stuffings too!)
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter (half a stick), melted
Directions:
  1. Spray a 9x13-inch casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray. 
  2. Place chicken breasts into the bottom of the dish.
  3. Top with slices of Pepperjack cheese.
  4. In a small bowl, combine cream of chicken soup with milk. Pour over cheese slices.
  5. Top with stuffing - the original recipe calls for half the bag, but you can do more, if you want.
  6. Drizzle melted butter over the top.
  7. Cook in a preheated-350 degree oven for 45 to 60 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
  8. Serve over rice or pasta - we chose egg noodles and chopped our chicken up.
