Imagine the entire Thanksgiving experience—turkey, green beans, stuffing—in a single casserole dish, and you’ve got the idea behind this recipe. It’s actually a terrific way to use up leftover turkey, but you’ll want to make it way more than once a year, so chicken is great, too. Add sliced carrots and a creamy sauce, then top the whole thing with stuffing and bake until it’s browned and delicious, and you’ll have a comforting Country Chicken Casserole that no one will be able to resist.

Heat the oven to 400°F. While the oven is heating, heat the butter in a 3-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and celery and cook until tender-crisp. Add the broth and heat to a boil. Remove the saucepan from the heat. Add the stuffing and mix lightly.
Stir the soups, milk, thyme, green beans, carrots and chicken in a 13x9x2-inch baking dish. Season the mixture with salt and pepper. Top with the stuffing.
Bake for 30 minutes or until the stuffing is golden brown. Serve hot.
Takes some time
I made half of this recipe in a 1.5qt. stoneware baking dish. I used Cream of Chicken soup. I used four chicken tenderloins that I baked for 12 minutes, then shredded with two forks. I cooked frozen peas and carrots in boiling water, drained the water, then stirred in the remaining ingredients and let them heat through. I prepared half of a 6oz. box of chicken stuffing and used that on top of the hot mixture. My only complaints are that the filling is too 'loose' for me so next time I'll use a little less milk, and that you have to precook the chicken and veggies and make the stuffing, so this isn't quite as quick and it seems.
Great and easy
In a pinch for time I used box of stove top stuffing. I box is all you need. Great! It's on the make again meal list,

Country Chicken Casserole
I used one can of mixed vegetables. Saute 1/2 large onion, two celery stalks and add some left over corn. I also increased the cooked chicken to 3 cups. I did not have the thyme leaves so added about 1 tablespoons of Poultry Seasoning and some Salt. The recipe did not give you much info on how to prepared the Stuffing Mix, so I sprinkled the dry stuffing mix and topped with some melted butter. Worked great.
