Chicken Stuffing Bake
Casseroles, like this Tater Tot Casserole, are always weeknight winners. I love when dinner can easily be made and enjoyed in one pan, taking less cook time and cleanup time.
This Chicken Stuffing Bake is no different, and is as comforting as stuffing can be. I made this for the first time after having stuffing leftovers. Have you checked out my Slow Cooker Stuffing recipe yet? It’s truly life-changing!
It’ll truly make you feel like it’s a special holiday dinner – without the fuss involved. It’s a comforting and hearty taste, without spending countless hours in the kitchen.
This easy chicken and stuffing casserole is made in 45 minutes, and includes all the comfort foods to warm you up fast. Featuring chicken, stuffing, cream of chicken soup and broccoli – it’s a meal with all the nutrition, in one dish!
You can also substitute turkey in the recipe too, to use up those holiday leftovers. I have done this after past holidays, and I look forward to this recipe as much as the big day.
Just make sure to watch the sodium with this recipe, choose low sodium soups and no added salt when you can. This is because you might have already added it to your stuffing and/or chicken. And too much will overwhelm this recipe.
How do you make chicken casserole with stuffing?
I used leftovers from a rotisserie chicken for this recipe, yet you can also cook chicken breasts or thighs for this as well. It’s also an easy recipe thanks to the addition of a box of stuffing mix – your choice in flavour.
Yet note that you can use up your own homemade stuffing too, so it’s a versatile recipe for leftovers or to make on its own.
I usually have many stuffing mix boxes on hand, because I use them in so many of my favourite recipes. It’s actually the star ingredient in my Best meatloaf Recipe!
At this time of year boxed stuffing is on sale too, making it one frugal ingredient. This is the ideal time to make all those delicious recipes using boxed stuffing. This recipe is just one of many great ones.
The recipe calls for steamed broccoli, and this is easily done as well. Simply put the broccoli in a microwave safe bowl, add in a cup of water, cover with a paper towel and cook for 30-60 seconds.
Perfectly steamed broccoli in the microwave – every time!
This is a little secret that I’ve been using in my kitchen for many years. In minutes it’s ready, with no need to boil or use a traditional steamer.

To easily steam broccoli, place florets in a microwave safe bowl, add a cup of water and cover with a paper towel. Cook for 30-60 seconds and you have perfectly steamed broccoli!
Some stuffing mixes, soups and broths have plenty of salt already. So be aware of this when choosing your ingredients, or it might be too salty. I stated to add salt to your finished dish as desired, based on this.
