How to Make Chicken Stuffing Casserole

This dish is similar to a quick chicken pot pie with a stuffing topping! Hot and comforting, it can be on the table in no time at all!

  1. Prep Stuffing: Add hot water and fluff with fork. To make it quick, hot tap water works for this recipe, no need to boil it.

  3. Bake until bubbly and golden on top!

Quick Tips

  • Combine stuffing and hot water first so it can soak up the water while you prep the rest.
  • Run frozen veggies under hot water to defrost quickly.
  • Shredded chicken can be substituted with ground beef, ham or leftover turkey.
  • Any “cream of” soup can be used in this recipe.
  • Adding a little sprinkle of cheese on the top of the stuffing will give it an extra punch of flavor!

  1. I make this once a week and triple thee recipe. the guys love it so much they have to have it for lunch until its all gone. I like it slot too. The only things I do.differently is I too use chicken broth in place of water. I use 3/4 cup less tho since I triple recipe n I add 1 and a half sticks melted butter to stuffing and broth. We must have that yummy butter in our stuffing. Lol. Also I saute garlic and onion then add diced chicken to pan then. It takes longer since its so much more but thats ok.
    I also have a few times used boneless pork chops and pork stove top stuffing. The guys love that also. Thanks for all the fabulous recipies5 stars

  2. Delicious and easy! I added one more can of cream soup and onion powder. Definitely a keeper thanks!

  3. Hi! I’m making this tonight. Could you please roughly tell me how much is a serving? A cup? A cup and a half? TIA!

    1. Welcome Elizabeth! To receive emails with new recipes, you can click here to sign up to receive emails. Look forward to sending you recipes!

  4. This was awesome! I made it exactly as said except added another box of stuffing (my boys eat a lot). I used left over ham from Easter. Next time I think I would probably double the recipe, but like I said might just be my teenage boys and their appetites!
    Thank you so much for the recipe. I get so tired of making the same thing all the time. I came across your recipe for tilapia and also the stuffed peppers and loved both of them so now I tend to look to your recipes for new ideas.5 stars

    1. So glad to hear that you and your boys are loving the recipes at Spend With Pennies Nicole! You’re very welcome!

    1. I have only made the recipe as written Mary, but I’m sure that’d be delicious! Gravy may be a little more watery, so you may want to thicken it to the consistency of the soup, or add a little less.

    2. No, I definitely would not add canned or jar soup. Cream of chicken soup ( Or cream of chicken and Herb) and the sour cream work far better in this. You will not taste the sour cream AT ALL. . BUT it does 2 nice things for this recipe. 1) makes the cream of chicken soup taste more like a homemade sauce and 2) adds a nice slightly richer taste. So no worries if you do not like sour cream. But stick with either the cream of chicken soup or the homemade version that you can click on in the recipe above.

  5. I am wondering if I can prepare this recipe ahead of time and store it in the freezer, unbaked? If so, what would the baking instructions be? Would I bake it from the frozen state, or would I let it thaw out and then bake it?

    1. We haven’t tried freezing this casserole but it should work Cheryl. It might be best to add the stuffing mixture just before baking it though. Just let it defrost, top with stuffing, and pop it in the oven as directed in step 4.

  6. I keep searching recipes and always end up at your website. The best recipe website I’ve found. I’ve mad this before but not with veggies and sour cream. Thanks!!

  7. Great recipe! It always amazes me when people says (the recipe doesn’t say) it’s because they don’t read the whole recipe.

  8. I’ve made this before and it’s really good. Here’s what I do….saute some diced onion, celery and carrots in butter till translucent. Make your stuffing but use chicken broth not water for a much better flavor. Add your sautéed vegetables and mix. You can even add a small diced apple to it. Then mix in your cream of chicken soup and sour cream. Follow the rest of the recipe, Sooo good!5 stars

    1. Just reread my comment and since you can’t edit it right away I will post it here. It should say mix your cream of chicken soup and sour cream and follow the rest of the recipe. Sorry about that. :0)

  9. making this tonight again. I had a turkey tenderloin about 1 pound that i used last time. Easy to throw in oven , bake and chop up. Makes a change from all those chicken recipes!! So i am doing it again. This time i bought a turkey stuffing mix to match the tenderloin. Tasty and easy, only a few ingredients, not much chopping! And it freezes.4 stars
