Chicken and Stuffing Casserole is a super easy dinner recipe that’s ready in just minutes! A creamy, cozy casserole that everyone will love!



  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 10 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 5 cups cooked, diced or shredded chicken (can also substitute turkey, see note)
  • 2 cups frozen peas and carrots
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 (10 ounce can) cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 (10 ounce can) cream of chicken soup
  • 1 cup whole or 2% milk
  • 3 cups dry stuffing mix (we like the chicken flavor)
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add oil to a large skillet and cook the onion and mushrooms for 5-7 minutes until the mushrooms have browned. Season with the salt pepper, dried parsley and garlic powder. Stir in the frozen peas and carrots and cook until they have defrosted, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat to cool.
  3. Add both cans of soup and the milk to a large bowl and whisk to combine. Add the chicken along with the vegetables from the skillet and fold gently to combine.
  4. Spray a 9″ x 13″ (see note) baking dish with cooking spray. Pour the chicken and vegetable filling into the baking dish, spreading out into an even layer.
  5. Wipe out the skillet and then add the butter to melt over medium heat. Pour in the dry stuffing, stirring with the butter and cook for 2 minutes. Pour the stuffing on top of the casserole, spreading out in an even layer.
  6. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 25 minutes until the filling is warmed through. You can take the foil off for the last 5 minutes of cooking if you want the stuffing on top to get crispy.

Recipe Notes

Store: Store leftovers in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Try to spoon the casserole into the container with the stuffing layer on top so that it stays crisp.

Reheat: Reheat leftovers in the microwave or the oven until warmed through.

If using a rotisserie chicken, you’ll need a larger chicken to get 5 cups of chicken, or buy 2 regular sized rotisserie chickens.
