All this yummy dinner takes is a layering of some ingredients and some time in the oven.
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).
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
- Spray a 9x13-inch casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray.
- Place chicken breasts into the bottom of the dish.
- Top with slices of Pepperjack cheese.
- In a small bowl, combine cream of chicken soup with milk. Pour over cheese slices.
- Top with stuffing - the original recipe calls for half the bag, but you can do more, if you want.
- Drizzle melted butter over the top.
- Cook in a preheated-350 degree oven for 45 to 60 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
- Serve over rice or pasta - we chose egg noodles and chopped our chicken up.
