What To Do With Leftover Stuffing (An Easy Recipe You’ll Love)

Thanksgiving is almost here! I don’t know about you but I’m looking forward to a wonderful day with family, a day that revolves around tons of food. I love all the Thanksgiving staples – turkey, green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole, pumpkin pie, and one of my personal favs: STUFFING!

There always seems to be leftovers, doesn’t there?!? Growing up we used to eat Thanksgiving dinner around 1 or 2 but the family would stick around all day until supper time. That meant that for supper we’d have leftover turkey on bread with butter which was a good way to use up some leftovers. But what to do with all the leftover stuffing? There’s only so many days in a row you can eat it plain…

But never fear! I have a recipe for you. A recipe that can turn your leftover stuffing into a completely new dinner! My family loves this recipe so much that I actually buy stuffing all year long just for the purpose of making this recipe. (BTW it’s like super duper easy too. Just dirties ONE dish!)

Easy Stuffing Chicken Bake

Prep Time: 10 min
Total Time: 40 min
Makes: 6 servings

1 pkg Stove Top stuffing (or about 3-4 cups of leftover Thanksgiving stuffing)
1 1/2 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 can (10.75 oz) condensed cream of chicken OR cream of mushroom soup (I’ve tried both, both are good!)
1/3 cup sour cream
1 bag (16 oz) frozen mixed vegetables thawed and drained

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. If using stuffing from a box prepare stuffing as directed on the package.
2. Mix chicken, soup, sour cream and vegetables in a 9 x 13 baking dish. Top with the stuffing.
3. Bake 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

That’s it! Enjoy! =)

The first rule of cooking is always have an adorable helper in the kitchen with you. =) 
All mixed up and ready for the stuffing on top. 
Stuffing is on. Ready for the oven. 
Fresh out of the oven!
Ready for my adorable little helper to gobble down. =)  Yummy!
