This casserole is the mother of easy recipes.
Y’all asked me for easy casserole recipes and I think I delivered on this because it don’t get no easier than this.
It’s so easy it’s almost embarrassing.
And y’all are going to laugh at me but I didn't know where to find Stove Top or a jar of gravy in the grocery store and had to ask for help. Twice.
I wouldn't pull this out if the boss was coming to dinner but for a quick weeknight supper, it was spot-on! And the onions totally gobbled it up.
Stuffed Chicken with Gravy
6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs*
1 6-ounce box chicken stuffing mix (such as Stove Top)
1 12-ounce jar chicken gravy, heated
Salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste
Prepare stuffing mix per manufacturer’s instructions, cover and set aside. I've used traditional and cornbread stuffing in this and love them both!
Spray a 13x9 casserole dish with cooking spray. Trim excess fat from chicken then season both sides with salt, pepper and garlic. Place about 1/4 cup of stuffing mix on each piece of chicken then wrap sides around to create a little bundle. Place bundles in casserole dish. Spoon remaining stuffing into casserole dish around chicken bundles. Cover dish with aluminum foil and bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.
Remove dish from oven. Remove aluminum foil then continue cooking, uncovered, for 15-20 more minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
Pour gravy over chicken and stuffing when ready to serve.
*Can substitute chicken breast cutlets if desired but I think the thighs are amazingly flavorful and moist. They’re kinda my favorite weeknight protein right now.
