Easy Chicken Casserole with Stuffing Mix

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!

How to Make Yum Yum Chicken Casserole

To cut down on prep time, I like to use a rotisserie chicken. Chop the cooked chicken and spread in the bottom of a 9×13-inch casserole dish. Next mix together the Cream of Chicken Soup, Cream of Celery Soup and sour cream. Spread over the chicken. Sprinkle a bag of stuffing mix over the soup mixture. I like to use Pepperidge Farm stuffing mix. Finally, pour some chicken broth and melted butter on top. SO quick and easy! I had this ready to bake before the oven had fully preheated.

Feel free to use Cream of Mushroom if you aren’t a Cream of Celery Soup fan. I have also seen versions of this recipe with swiss cheese. Sounds delicious!!!

  1. 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.

  2. 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" 🙂

  3. 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!

  4. 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!

  5. Sounds delic! I am trying this tonight…but using whole chicken thighs as that is what I had in the freezer. Hopefully it is just as yummy!

  6. That looks so yummy! I don't normally do this but I'm going to post my own recipe because it is soooo good and sooo easy in the crock pot…I've made it two nights in a row and would love for you to try it!!!
