I have a few recipes that most, if not all, ingredients are kitchen staples. Here's one of my favorite: Stove Top Stuffing Chicken Casserole. I usually have a bag of chicken breasts in the freezer that have been packaged up flat so they thaw quickly. And I make a BIG batch because it is so good as leftovers (or for feeding starving wolves...).
5 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips or chunks, as to your preference.
10 oz. Swiss cheese, grated
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 c. milk (or half & half)
2 boxes stuffing mix (my favorite is Stove Top chicken)
1/2 c. melted butter
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Butter or spray a 10 X 15 pan.
Place chicken in the bottom of the pan. Top evenly with Swiss cheese.
Combine soup and milk, pour over cheese. Spread so it's a fairly even across the top.
Sprinkle stuffing mix over top of casserole. Drizzle melted butter over stuffing mix.
Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for about 45 - 50 minutes.
(I usually lightly 'mix' the stuffing down a bit into the sauce after I remove from the oven. I don't like the stuffing too crunchy and this helps it to soak up some of the gravy from the casserole.)
