Easy Chicken Bake ~

Easy chicken bake with stovetop stuffing

Most of us like to think outside the box. Sometimes you have to examine the box a little closer. There could be a delicious surprise waiting on a box near you.
My BFF invited me over for dinner and a night of girl talk. The meal was so good that I asked for the recipe. My BFF giggled her way to the pantry. Turns out this recipe was from a box; Kraft Stove Top Stuffing Mix.

Easy Chicken Bake Recipe

I’m not a big fan of boxed stuffing, but I have to admit, I liked it so much that I made it the next night. It was a very easy recipe. I think even a food-deprived teenager could make it.

You will need:

1 box Kraft Stovetop Stuffing {cooked}

1-1 1/2 lb. skinless chicken breasts cut into 1 inch pieces

one can condensed cream of chicken soup

1/3 cup of sour cream

one bag {16 oz} frozen mixed vegetables drained

*Since I like to think outside the box, I skipped the veggies this time.



Kraft Easy Chicken Bake

To make the recipe even more time-consuming, I just used a package of chicken cutlets (4). I simply laid the cutlets in a 9″ pie dish, and layered the ingredients. I quickly spread the sour cream on top of the chicken and the can of cream of chicken soup over the sour cream.

Lastly, I added the cooked Kraft Stovetop Stuffing Mix and popped the dish in the oven for 30 minutes at 400 degrees.

The only thing missing was a good glass of wine! I believe Easy Chicken bake is a very easy, budget-friendly recipe that could feed 2 to 4 people. I went to the grocery store unarmed (No coupons). I did get lucky, the Stove Top Stuffing Mix and the Campbell’s Cream of Chicken soup were BOGO. I spent $12.35, less than 5 minutes prepping and had a Delicious meal 30 minutes later.

  5. Yum and I’m starving. Yes I do believe a glass of wine would go perfect.

  6. I’ve made slow cooker chicken for years. I love it. I skip the sour cream and vegetables. You can start it in the morning and it’s ready for dinner. I found the recipe in a slow cooker cook book.

  7. Campbell’s Soup and Stove Top are two of my favorite things, I will definitely be trying this.

  8. Krystle(Baking Beauty) says:

    Since I have pinned this recipe I thought I would comment on it too. Sometimes these mixtures of semi- pzckage and semi home prepared dishes can be delicious. I love hw you can always change it a little. You left out the veggies, but you could also add different veggies.

  17. Gina Brickell says:

    I’ve made something similar before.. Not exactly like that, but the thing about it is it’s soooo good and very quick and easy!! I love baking with Campbell’s condensed soups because there is sooo many different things you can do wit them… My personal favorite is Cream of Mushroom.. i love to use that for almost everything!!!!

    I love recipes that are easy to prepare and taste delicious. Moreover with the vegetables in the same dish it is a one -dish meal

  41. Sherry Compton says:

    Great comment about taking a closer look at the box. For holidays, I’d rather make my own stuffing, but Stove Top is really yummy, too. We often cover chicken with cream of chicken soup and bake it, but I had never thought about adding stuffing as a crust. Interesting. Sounds yummy.

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      I like to cover chicken with cream of mushroom soup or cream of celery and bake it, too. I haven’t tried the cream of chicken over it, but I am sure that is delicious as well. 🙂

  42. Hello! to me! I ‘m excited about this recipe – I would include the veggies – this is a great combo, I adore everything in this recipe, I would have never thought of combining them. I would love to try this and I bet it will be a bit hit!

  43. amanda whitley says:

    at first glance this looks yummy but then i see one of the ingredients is stuffing and i am iffy. im not a big stuffing fan but still worth trying

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      Oh, I love stuffing. When Thanksgiving rolls around, it’s one of the things I look forward to most. I especially like it with celery in it. 🙂

  44. stephanie says:

    sounds yumy!!

  45. Michelle F. says:

    that looks really good

  46. amanda whitley says:

    that looks really good. i typically don’t like stuffing but i think in this way it would taste good.

  47. wow, this looks yummy and super easy to make!

  48. md Kennedy says:

    What a great recipe – and such an easy one to customize. I can see adding cranberries to the stuffing mix, for example.

  49. I’m not real big into stuffing, but I know my husband will eat this up! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  50. This looks good! I like making things with very few ingredients — it makes me feel like I know what I’m doing in the kitchen! 🙂
