I love a super fast meal that I can put together quickly and trust that my family will eat it. This is one of those go to meals at our house. My grandma made it for us once when we were first married and I have been making it ever since. I love to make this one if we are needing to be somewhere right before dinner, but want to come home to a hot meal. My new oven has a delayed start time and I’m telling you… it’s changing my life!! I make this, put it in the oven with a start time of 1 hour before we will be home and walk away! When we get home from taekwondo, or gymnastics, or wherever we happened to be that day, the house smells amazing and all I have to do is pull it out and dish up dinner.
To make this meal, you need 5 ingredients: chicken breast, cheese (you can use whatever you have on hand. My grandma made her’s with Swiss cheese, but I rarely have Swiss cheese on hand, so I usually use American cheese), 1 can of cream of chicken soup, a box of chicken stuffing mix, and about 3 TBSP of butter.
First thaw and cut your chicken into smaller sizes so it will bake faster. I usually cut mine in half so it is not so thick first and if it is still long I may cut it in half again. Use whatever portion size is good for your family. Then place the chicken into a sprayed 9×13 dish.
Add the cheese slices on top of the raw chicken.
Spread the cream of chicken soup over every piece of chicken and fill in the gaps.
In a mixing bowl, melt the butter then toss with the stuffing mix using a fork.
Sprinkle the buttered stuffing over the top of the chicken soup.
Cover with foil and bake 45 min-1 hour. If you want the stuffing to be a bit crunchy then remove the foil the last 10 minutes of baking.
That’s it! I hope you will try this one out. Let me know if you do. This meal makes my family nice and happy!
