Chicken and Stuffing

Chicken and Stuffing
As the weather gets colder and the days get shorter here in the Northeast I find myself migrating toward recipes that are comfy, cozy and homey.  Chicken and stuffing as a name for this recipe really doesn't do it justice.  The chicken is moist, tender and very flavorful because it is cooked on the bone.  The stuffing is moist and filled with the flavors of herbs, onion and celery.  Bringing the two together is the mushroom and wine sauce made from that old standby, cream of mushroom soup.  Don't judge me, now!  You know you have some in your pantry for dishes just like this one.

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.

Chicken and Stuffing

Chicken and Stuffing Ingredients

  • 1/2 large package herb seasoned stuffing mix

Brown the Chicken then Start the Stuffing


Add the onion and celery to the same pan in which you browned the chicken.  Cook the onion and celery until soft and tender, about 5 minutes.  Add the stuffing mix to the pan with the onion and celery, stirring to combine.  Add the chicken broth, stirring to combine.  You'll want the stuffing mix to be moist.  If necessary, add a little water.
The Stuffing


Mix together the mushroom soup and wine.  Set aside.  Place the chicken pieces skin side up in a baking dish.  Pour the mushroom and wine mixture over the chicken pieces. 
The Mushroom Sauce is Thick and Yummy
