Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids, a lovely retired greyhound, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

Chicken Casserole

This dinner is a big hit at my house; in fact it was hubby's #1 dinner for many years (it has since been replaced in ranking by meatloaf). It is also my go-to dish when a friend has a baby. I can make it ahead and either cook it and bring it over hot or get it all ready and they can simply stick it in the oven. It also tastes really good reheated.

Grandma's Chicken Casserole
Prep Time: 50 minutes (Baking the chicken and mixing ingredients.
Cook Time: 40 Minutes
Total Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes

You will need:
5 chicken breasts (boneless/skinless), cooked and cubed
1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
1/2 cup water
(1) 6 oz package of Swiss Cheese, sliced
(1) 8 oz package Stuffing/Dressing, Chicken flavored
1 stick butter/margarine

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Mix together cooked/cubed chicken, soup, and water. 
  3. Spray baking dish with cooking spray. 
  4. Put the chicken mixture into the baking dish. 
  5. Lay Swiss Cheese slices on top of chicken.
  6. Melt butter. Add stuffing. Mix well. 
  7. Pour stuffing on top of Swiss Cheese.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes. (HINT: About halfway through cooking, check the stuffing. If it is getting too brown, cover with aluminum foil.)
I just started putting in green beans, probably about 1 1/2 -2 cups of green beans. Cut green beans into 1/2-1 inch pieces and mix into casserole. Top with stuffing as above and cover with foil. Bake for 30-40 minutes. Uncover and bake another 10 minutes.
