  • What’s better than chicken and stuffing combined together? Very few things people, very few things.
  • This casserole takes almost no time to put together while still managing to feel like something you could have spent hours crafting in the kitchen.

Why not use Mom’s Homemade Stove Top Stuffing recipe for your casserole rather than a box mix for that real homey flavor? For even more festive casseroles, make sure to try this Creamy Turkey Casserole!

Chicken And Stuffing Casserole

Casseroles were created to use up leftover meat while also providing you with a quick, healthy, and comforting weeknight meal, and this chicken and stuffing casserole does just that.

You might be wondering why this recipe calls for two different flavored soups and whether you could just use two cans of the same flavor.

The two cans of cream soup that go into this casserole form the sauce. Using two flavors is a clever, quick trick to adding an extra layer of depth to the dish while not having to use fresh ingredients.

Does It Matter What Vegetable Mix You Use?

Most store-bought frozen vegetable mixes tend to be pretty similar. Peas, carrots, green beans, and sweet corn are the most commonly found vegetables in frozen mixes.

Almost any frozen vegetable mix will work with this chicken and stuffing casserole. It really depends on your taste and what you can find in stores.

Apart from the obvious health benefits of adding vegetables to a casserole, there are two other things that you want your chosen vegetable mix to provide.

  • Firstly, the vegetables should add a subtle sweetness to the dish. Peas, carrots, and sweet corn all have that fresh, healthy sweet flavor. However, vegetables such as broccoli or spinach do not.
  • Secondly, the vegetables serve an aesthetic purpose giving the dish a pop of color and helping to make it more visually appealing when served.

Keep these things in mind when deciding on a vegetable mix to use in your casserole and you can’t really go wrong.

Karlynn’s Tip

A rotisserie chicken from your local grocery store will work just as well in this recipe as a home-cooked chicken. In some ways, it is even better as you get some of that rotisserie flavor that is almost impossible to replicate at home in your casserole.

The Best Stuffing Mixes To Use

  1. Cornbread Stuffing Mix will also result in a slightly softer topping than if regular bread stuffing were used.
  2. Chicken stuffing will enhance the chicken flavor and still add that crunchy topping.
  3. Classic herb-flavored bread cube stuffing will add texture and the added herbs will provide an extra layer of flavor to each bite.

    Dear Karlynn, just tried your recipe tonight. Both hubby and I gave it a 10 out of 10. Delicious! Thank you so much for a very comforting meal on a real chilly night. Can’t wait to try your other recipes.
    Blessings to you and yours in the 2023!

  2. Karessa says

    Nice recipe! The size of ingredients should be mentioned and also you should probably double the chicken, vegetables and soup for a thick dish.4 stars

  3. Kate F Eaton says

    Made this one with ground venison., the hubby loves it. Will try with chicken next, I’m sure it will be fabulous.5 stars

  4. Courtney says

    Can you make it ahead of time and then pop in the oven when you’re ready to cook it?

  5. Lesley says

    While this may be easy, it’s LOADED with salt
    Perhaps editing is a good idea as well. Bloviating paragraphs before recipe is unnecessary. In the “what vegetables” section I believe you meant Aesthetic not ascetic.2 stars

    • Karlynn says

      Aww, tell the nice lady what those mean cans of soup did to you 🤣 I mean it’s CANNED SOUP did you expect low sodium? You don’t have to eat it, no one’s making you!

      And I’m super glad you read my “bloviating” paragraphs so intently you found a spelling mistake. 😂 Made me laugh!

    • Thomas says

      Oh my Karlynn, I’ve made slightly different versions of your chicken casserole. I’ve added about 2/3 cup sour cream for some tanginess. and have used cream of mushroom for another flavor change. I enjoy your bloviating, it adds interest and great ideas. Well, at the risk of being too verbose, Have a great day, l love your ideas and recipes!

  6. Melissa Bradley says

    yum yum yum! easy and fun to make tastes excellent!!! Thank you for sharing the recipe! made one and froze one for next week!5 stars

  7. Julie F says

    are there any substitutions I can use for the cream soups? need milk free options, if possible.

  8. Jan says

    Try Pepperidge Farm Cornbread Stuffing Mix. It is wonderfully flavourful. Also, canned chicken breast could be the 4th option here.
