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
- 8 whole Chicken Breasts, Cooked, Seasoned And Shredded (I like to use boneless thighs)
- 2 cans (10.75 Oz) Organic Cream Of Chicken Soup
- 2 sticks Butter
- 4 packages (6 Oz) Pepperidge Farm Dressing With Herbs
- 2 cups Sour Cream
- 3 cups chicken broth water from cooked chicken (Or Canned Broth If You Prefer)
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 2 packages of dressing mix. Add enough of the chicken water (or canned broth) to reach a thin consistancy, about 3 or so cups.
Put stuffing mixture into a lightly sprayed casserole dish. You will want a large 10×14 Pyrex or the deep pampered chef rectangle baker. 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 1 hr or until hot in center.
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!
- 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.
(make the peas, be BRAVE)

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
We love anything with Stuffing this looks Delicious!
Yummy! I adore stuffing of any sort.
I’ve recently become addicted to frozen peas! I’ve been stirring them into our rice almost every day. Now I want to try your creamed peas!
Hi Tonya! For a great variation on the creamed peas, and some small cooked new potatoes….comfort food heaven!!
Oops….I meant ADD some small cooked new potatoes.
OOoo, that sounds yummy!
I would just love this meal. Chicken and Dressing with Cream Pea’s, Girl, you are after my heart this is soul food for me. Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and come back soon.
That chicken sounds really good. Thanks for linking up at A Little Nosh this week!
Sounds delicious – I’m sort of a sucker for casseroles, especially in the winter. Thanks so much for linking up and sharing!
Thanks for hosting such a fun weekly party, Alissa!
Your recipe is featured on Full Plate Thursday this week. Hope you are having a great day and enjoy your new Red Plate.
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!
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!

I made both of these dishes tonight after seeing it on Flashback Friday and LOVED them both! I’ll be making these again!!
Both recipes look delish! I love peas anyway you make ’em, especially creamed!
Made this tonight- it was delicious! Thanks!
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!
Welcome to 4 little Fergusons! 🙂 So glad to have you back for round 2, tee hee. I’d say it’s meant to be! 🙂 Hope you love this dish as much as we do….

I don’t usually care for peas, but these…these are amazing.
YAY! So glad to hear another Pea hater has crossed over! Who knew peas didn’t have to be pale and smooshy, right!? 🙂
