Chicken stuffing casserole is a quick and simple chicken casserole. This chicken and stuffing casserole is made with diced chicken, cream of chicken soup, Stove Top stuffing, sour cream and chicken broth. 5 ingredients is all it takes for this chicken stuffing bake. This is an easy recipe for chicken breasts or another boneless chicken cut. The ultimate comfort food to whip up and serve your family.
This is also a great leftover turkey casserole for after the holidays. If you are needing a simple throw together dinner with hands-off cooking, this casserole is a great fit. Another comfort food idea, is this pressure cooker turkey breast. Pair with any side dish recipes like mixed vegetables, dinner rolls, etc. An easy casserole perfect for a busy day. Just toss in the oven and let it cook away.
This chicken recipe can also be a crockpot dinner, but I actually prefer the texture of it baked. As the stuffing has a firmer texture. If cooked in the crockpot it can make the stuffing a bit soggy. You could use a homemade cream of chicken soup and your own homemade stuffing. I just prefer to buy boxed to make it an easy dinner recipe.

Ingredients For Casserole
Chicken – You will want to use boneless chicken that you dice up. You can use white or dark meat or do a mix of it if you prefer. Cube the chicken into 1 inch pieces.
Condensed Soup – You can substitute cream of mushroom soup, cream of celery, etc. Feel free to use whatever condensed soup you prefer. We like the chicken as it enhances a natural rich chicken flavor of the dish.
Sour Cream – I love the creamy and tangy feature this sour cream adds to the casserole.
Stuffing – I used Stovetop chicken stuffing but you can use any flavor of stuffing you prefer.
Chicken Broth – chicken or even a bone broth works great. This is going to help add flavor to stuffing and keep your dish moist.
Variations to Recipe
Here are some easy swaps and changes to this chicken and dressing recipe.
- Use turkey instead of chicken.
- You can use pre-cooked leftover chicken or turkey in replace of raw chicken.
- Add in some frozen veggies or even corn to mix in with the chicken. Stir in a can of medley of vegetables to make it a complete meal. Or do a can of corn, green beans, etc. Just drain the canned vegetables first. Or use frozen.
- Use homemade condensed soup instead of canned if you prefer.
- You can use a vegetable broth, chicken bouillon or better than bouillon paste in replace of chicken broth. It helps to create a creamy chicken filling while adding extra flavor to the dish, instead of just plain water.

Is the stuffing dry or already prewait to make this!!pared according to Stove Top directions? Thanks. Can’t w
You sprinkle the dry stuffing on top, then pour the chicken broth over the top. Some pieces will be crunchy and others will be soft once it is baked! It is a nice mix of texture.

@Kelsey, thank you
Krista Goben says
Do you sprinkle the contents of the seasoning package on top of the stuffing, or just save for another use?
Yes you add the seasoning with it. I didn’t realize some stuffing doesn’t have it already mixed in. The ones I used are already mixed together to where you can’t save it back. But you would want the seasoning or it will be very bland.
This is by FAR, the best recipe. There is absolutely no need to cook the chicken or prepare the stove top stuffing beforehand and this recipe proved it! Perfect! And sooo easy, thank you!!!
You just made my whole day, thank you so much!

Thanks for the great recipe! My husband and I loved it! I love trying new ideas in the kitchen. The sour cream had me worried but I am glad I didn’t leave it out. It coupled perfectly with the stuffing. Thanks again!❤️
So happy to hear!!!
Got my casserole in the oven now! (Had a busy day so we’re having a late dinner tonight! ) But I can’t wait to see how it comes out! I read a few other posts but yours seemed the easiest. I did add a few extra things though…I added some yellow onion & celery in my cream of mushroom soup with a low sodium chicken gravy packet to add extra chicken flavor since I didn’t have the cream of chicken soup & I also used 2 boxes of the stuffing mix because with all the condensed soup & sour cream I thought it needed more stuffing with it. Everything looked & smelled amazing so I can’t wait to eat it when it’s ready! Thank you for the recipe!

Can u use cooked chicken? If so how long would u cook it for?
You can use pre-cooked chicken. You would bake for 30 minutes to get it nice and warmed.
Glenn Wolfe says
Do you mix the soup according to the directions on the can or just use the contents of the can ?
Lisa Martin says
Can you use while chicken breast instead of cutting it up?
You can but you will adjust the cooking time just to ensure the chicken is fully cooked.
