|Chicken and Stuffing|
The great thing about a recipe like this one besides its homey deliciousness is that it can easily be scaled to serve a few more, or many more. It takes about 30 minutes to prepare and an hour to bake. That means it won't work as a last minute weeknight dinner, but consider adding it to your menu rotation for the days when you have a little extra time.
