Mmmmm Stuffing. Stuffing all the things this time of year. I love stuffing! Especially my delicious Crock Pot Stuffing that’s been handed down from my Aunt. I’m kind of high maintenance when it comes to stuffing. I’m sure you are thinking that I like some super complicated, stuffed full of different flavors stuffing. Nope. Traditional homemade stuffing for me all the way! And to think that I used to turn my nose up at the thought of stuffing. I’m such a weirdo. Now pumpkin pie, that I’ll still turn my nose up at. I’m much more of a Chocolate Pecan Pie type of person or Easy Pumpkin Dump Dessert kind of girl. Now those I’ll just dig into with a fork!

But let’s face it. We aren’t about to make a turkey and stuffing dinner every time we are craving a little stuffing. It’s just not realistic if our lives is it? Now, I learned that apparently some people do this and that’s just fine! I was telling a high school classmate that I had never made a turkey before. For the record that changed this fall, but as of then I hadn’t. She about fell over. She’s like, you are a blogger and you never made a turkey? She said she craves it and then makes one frequently. Same with mashed potatoes. Mmmm not me! I missed that boat! She had always told me that I was a better cook than her. I beg to differ with that statement. I think she can handle her own from the sounds of it!

While out to eat with girlfriends this came up in topic and we discussed how she made turkey and I didn’t. It was interesting to find out I was definitely not the only that was a turkey making virgin! Some people thought they were difficult to make, some didn’t like turkey because it was always dry in their experience and some just never craved it. I can assure you when I tried to make turkey it was far from dry and far from difficult to make because I’m all about ease in the kitchen. My one classmate that complained of dry turkey is going to be invited over for dinner so she can finally have some good turkey that’s for sure!

    Wow! I would have never thought to pair cheese with stuffing! I love this recipe!!

  • Hayley @ The Domestic Rebel


    My mouth is watering, Julie! I am obsessed with stuffing and, like you, I’m totally a traditionalist when it comes to it. I like it plain, maybe with some sausage and onions – but that’s it! This casserole looks to-die for!

  • Jennifer @ Show Me the Yummy


    Oh. My. Yum. Julie!! This looks SO delicious! Cheesy Chicken Stuffing Casserole?! The title says it all! 🙂

  • Ashley | The Recipe Rebel


    Haha, I was totally a turkey virgin until like a week ago. I wanted to make a turkey so I can chop it up and keep some in the freezer! Now I’m a convert, it definitely will not be my last turkey! This looks like such a fun fall meal!

  • Jessica - The Novice Chef


    This sounds like the ultimate comfort food. I can’t wait to try it!

  • Christin@SpicySouthernKitchen


    This casserole looks to die for!!

  • Teri Giese


    See,this is why we love you Julie!Keeping it simple. Been cooking more years than you have been alive cutie, amazing you you come up with stuff an old 54 year young chick should have thought of.Looks YUMS!!Agree on that stuffing. Have a million recipes, but too much stuff is not good in stuffing. PUN INTENDED!! I slay myself! ?

    • Julie Evink


      Awwww Thanks so much Teri! I hope you enjoy it 🙂

  • Malinda @ Countryside Cravings


    Hey I made my first turkey all by myself just last year. I don’t know why I was so scared of making one either. I’m not a pumpkin pie eater either! Love this casserole and it is much like one I grew up eating!!

  • Danielle | The Creative Bite


    My mom made a version of this recipe growing up quite often as everyone loved it, but she didn’t include cheese in hers. What the heck! The cheese just takes this to a whole new level and I’m pretty sure I need to make it ASAP!

  • June Patterson


    Great recipe. I think I am going to put broccoli on the bottom to get a veggie in with no extra work. As far as cooking a turkey, I always cook mine in a Reynolds cooking bag. It is always moist, it cooks faster, the juices make delicious gravy, no pan to scrub, and my oven stays clean.

    • Julie Evink


      Sounds like a great addition June! I used the cooking bag for my turkeys and it turns out amazing! Such and awesome shortcut 🙂

  • Amanda


    I’m sorry, but we did not like this recipe. The stuffing served no purpose, it was incredibly dry! Last time for me.

  • Runcooking


    No doubt, this is a 5 star recipe! I absolutely LOVED this dish. Here’s what I did to make it extra special… and tasty. I spread a bit of the soup mixture on the bottom of my casserole dish. So I wouldn’t waste unused stuffing, I combined what was left with a little chicken broth (just enough to moisten the stuffing) and added it to the dish (after the soup layer). I then mixed the herb packet and stuffing called for in the recipe in a large zip-lock bag (I don’t think the recipe directs to use the herb packet…). I think this really helps distribute the flavors. I topped with chicken breasts, Swiss cheese (I used Alpine Swiss) and more sauce. I melted the butter as directed and poured over the chicken, and also added a few extra pats (you can’t have too much butter!) just to be sure that the casserole kept moist in the oven. This dish goes well with green beans, cold applesauce and milk. Thanks for sharing. This one’s a definite keeper!

  • Rebecca


    I tried this recipe yesterday. I used cream of celery instead of cream of chicken. It turned out so delicious! And I love how easy it is to throw together!

    • Julie Evink


      So glad you enjoyed it Rebecca!
