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 used boneless skinless chicken breast (baked & cubed) & had cream of chicken with herbs, & I used cream of mushroom roasted garlic instead of cream of celery, & I mixed in a packet of onion soup mix with the soups & sour cream, also added the Swiss cheese as suggested in previous comments. Sooooooo good!! ????

  3. I made this recipe just as it said. The flavor was GREAT, but my stuffing did not get puffy and moist like it showed in the photos. Any ideas? Thanks!

  4. This was delicious! Great comfort food. I did used Campbells Healthy Choice soups. Will definitely add this to my favorite recipe list. Thanks for sharing.

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  7. 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.
