Chicken Stuffing Skillet Dinner

So i have cooked this about a gazillion times using a million different versions but no matter how i do it people always love it. So i thought i would maybe share it with you all. This is by far one of the easiest recipes i know. From start to finish it takes about 20 minutes (assuming the chicken is already thawed). I love it because you could substitute the chicken for turkey if you want and it makes a great way to use up Thanksgiving and Christmas left overs. All you have to do is add a few sides or eat it as is and the topper is my kids love it. So here it goes!

What you will need:
  • 3-4 boneless skinless chicken or turkey breasts (or left over turkey/chicken meat)
  • 2 10.5 oz cans of either cream of mushroom soup or cream of chicken soup
  • 2 6 oz boxes of you choice of stuffing (i use chicken or turkey) (or left over stuffing)
  • 1 8oz bag of shredded cheese of your choice (i use cheddar)
  • 1/2 cup milk
Step 1: Slice chicken into bite size pieces and cook on medium in a deep skillet till cooked through. Add salt and pepper to taste. While chicken is cooking open cans of cream of mushroom and put in microwave safe bowl with a half a cup of milk mixing together before putting it in microwave for about 1 1/2 minutes. Remove and drain chicken and let it set to the side.

Step 2: Prepare stuffing in same pan pressing down till you have a even surface. Add chicken back on top of stuffing. Spread the chicken out evenly.

Step 3: Pour cream of mushroom soup over the chicken and stuffing. Use a spoon or spatula if needed to evenly distribute the soup.

Step 4: Cover with cheese leaving enough left over to add on the plate before serving. Cover and let cook on very low heat till warmed through. Serve and add extra cheese if wanted.

It might not be the most healthy thing and it might not look like it tastes wonderful but it is a favorite in my house. If you like Thanksgiving but don't wanna go through the hassle of cooking the whole thing on a regular day here it is in simple form. Really yummy and really filling.
