Yum Yum Chicken


This recipe is from Plain Chicken reader, Cheryl Ener.  This is her husband's grandmother's chicken casserole recipe.  Cheryl emailed me this recipe back in June, and I am just now posting it (slacker - I know).

I don't have a really good traditional chicken casserole recipe, so I was anxious to try this one out.  I used rotisserie chicken and this came together in minutes.  It was the perfect weeknight meal!  We both really enjoyed this casserole.  We now know why it is called "Yum Yum Chicken" - YUM!  Thank you so much for sharing this treasured family recipe, Cheryl!




Yum Yum Chicken
(Printable Recipe)

1 to 1 ½ lb. chicken, cooked and cut up (I shredded one rotisserie chicken)
8oz sour cream
1 can Cream of Chicken soup
1 can Cream of Celery soup
1 box Cornbread stuffing, uncooked (Stove Top)
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 stick melted butter

Preheat oven to 350.

In 9x13 baking dish, lay chicken in the bottom of the dish.  In separate bowl, mix together the cream of chicken soup, cream of celery soup and sour cream. Spread over the chicken.

Sprinkle the uncooked stuffing over the soup mixture, (note: if herb packet is not mixed with stuffing mixture, top stuffing with herb packet).  Mix together the broth and the melted butter and pour evenly over all.

Bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Serves approximately 6 - 8.

  2. I also put the swiss cheese in this recipe, right on top of the chicken and it's delicious!

  10. Years ago, my picky eater son came in so excited...he had dinner with a friend and his Mom cooked the best thing he had EVER had! I quickly called to see what it was, we were both good "made from scratch" cooks, this is the same recipe she gave me:) I have not made this in years, but will have to make soon, also thanks for the good flashback memory! Love your blog and read faithfully!

  11. Comfort food, for sure. I've seen a few varieties of this one but this one seems a bit easier, which is a good thing.

  12. What a beautiful photo of my family's favorite comfort food! We vary the ingredients just a tiny bit and call it Chicken Stuffin Stuff. All of our grown kids are now making it for their families. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe! It is absolutely fantastic!

  14. I make this same recipe but I add a bag of frozen mixed veggies (carrot, peas, green beans, corn) or use a couple cans of mixed veggies and make it a complete meal. Hubby loves it! I call it "Chicken Stuffing Stuff" :)

  15. I made this tonight and both my husband and I loved it. I forgot to get sour cream so I tried adding some shredded cheddar cheese in there to give it some tang. I can only imagine it would have been even better with the sour cream. I also added some garlic, onions and mushrooms. very good.

  16. We make it with the pepperidge farm brand stuffing and then serve it with canned cranberry sauce! So good.

  17. Do you think I could freeze this in individual portions?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Katherine - I think you could freeze this. You might add a little more chicken broth when you bake it to make sure the stuffing gets moist.

  19. I have been looking for this recipe for 18 years, since my mother-in-law suddenly died and I hadn't gotten it from her. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. I can't wait to make it.

  20. My mom used to make this, and I couldn't remember what made the creamy sauce. Thanks for the recipe, and the memory.

  21. So I didn't have sour cream so substituted cream cheese. Hope it turns out okay!

  22. We also make this with a slice of Swiss cheese on each piece of chicken and call it Heavenly Chicken!!!

  24. Anyone tried it with regular stuffing? I'm not a huge cornbread fan...

  25. OMG, this was amazing! So far all three recipes I have tried from this blog I have loved!

    I did make a few revisions to the recipe as written:
    1-I added a bit of Swiss cheese over the chicken, as suggested in the comments.
    2-I sautéed carrots, celery and onion that I chopped in the food processor, then added it to the sour cream mixture. (I used reduced fat sour cream).
    3-I added 1/2 tsp sage, salt and pepper to the sour cream mixture.
    4-I used the pepperidge farm cornbread stuffing mix and poured the margarine/chicken broth mixture into the stuffing mix before sprinkling it over the casserole...next time I am only going to use half the bag though because I thought it had too much and it'll help make it lower calorie:)

    Just a few suggestions for everyone because my hubby and I loved this one!
