Easy Chicken and Stuffing Casserole with Creamed Peas

This is the “real” post for today, I just had to share the first one because it totally cracked me up. 🙂

EASY CHICKEN & STUFFING CASSEROLE

012

Ingredients

  • 6 whole Chicken Breasts, Cooked, Seasoned And Shredded
  • 1 can (10.75 Oz) Cream Of Chicken Soup
  • 1 stick Butter
  • 1 package (6 Oz) Pepperidge Farm Dressing With Herbs (I may do 2 packages next time so we have more on top)
  • 1 cup Sour Cream
  • 2 cups Or More Juice From Cooked Chicken (Or Canned Broth If You Prefer)

Preparation Instructions

Boil chicken in a pot of salted water until done. Remove chicken breasts, reserving liquid. Place chicken in a medium bowl and shred with 2 forks.
Melt butter in a medium skillet with 3/4 package of dressing mix. Add enough of the chicken water to reach a thin consistancy, about 2 cups. (This is the budget method, if you have a can of chicken broth to use, use it here instead!)
Put stuffing mixture into a lightly sprayed casserole dish. Add shredded chicken, covering evenly. Mix sour cream and cream of chicken soup, spread on top of chicken layer. Place the rest of your dressing on top. Bake at 350* for 45 minutes.

Enjoy with a side of Creamed Peas, they taste AMAZING together!

 

Yup, I said Peas. 

You will eat them and you WILL like them.   

Oh sorry, I thought I was talking to my kids for a sec.  🙂

  Actually, I hate cooked peas, but I will eat these creamed ones.  My kids eat an entire double batch in one meal.  Yup, they are THAT good!

Quite wrinkling your nose, I’m serious!!!!  Gone are the pale, mushy peas of years past. These are tender with a hint of crisp and maintain their GORGEOUS green color!  I double the following recipe and the kids STILL gobble up every last bite.  Just try them once and I’ll leave you alone, I promise! 

CREAMED PEAS

cream peas

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Flour
  • 1 cup Milk
  • ½ teaspoons Sugar (optional)
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 dash Pepper
  • 2 cups Frozen Peas

  Melt butter over medium heat in a 1 quart saucepan, and whisk in flour until well blended and smooth. Now very gradually stir in the milk. When milk is combined, add optional sugar, salt and pepper. Cook and stir until sauce beings to boil. Stir and boil 1 minute. Add frozen peas and stir. Cover pan and allow to simmer for 5 minutes over medium heat.
Do NOT overcook! Soggy peas will ruin this dish, you want them tender but firm.

Happy Supper!

(make the peas, be BRAVE)

  1. Oh yeh Baby! Both of these dishes are right up my alley. Unfortunately, hubs doesn’t like stuffing and I rarely get to enjoy it at home. I will certainly wipe the drool over looking at your plateful of YUM. =D

  3. Tonya, you saved my supper the other night. It was a down-to-nothing in the fridge type of day. The ONLY vegetable I had in the entire house was some frozen peas. There was NO WAY I was gonna serve them as is. I remember you talking about your equal disdain for peas, so I dug up your blog. I couldn’t believe how something so simple could make something so gross taste so good! I loved them and will surely make again. Thanks for posting!

  4. This is what we had for supper tonight. It made a ton of it, so I shared with my mom for her lunch tomorrow…I had never boiled chicken breast in water….besides some spilling over of water it worked great. Thanks!

  7. I found my way to your blog a few weeks ago while looking for a creamed peas recipe. I made it and LOVED it. Just like I remember it tasted when I was a kid. Today, I was searching for a recipe to use up some chicken I have on hand. I followed a “pin” and ended up on this page again! lol So, no question about it. I’m printing this recipe out and trying it! No second thoughts at all, purely based on how good the creamed peas one was! 😉 Thanks for providing me with tonight’s dinner!
