This Chicken & Stuffing Skillet recipe is made for that moment at 5pm when you realize dinner needs to be made and no one else is going to make it for you! Luckily, all you need is package of chicken, some pantry staples and 30 minutes. Saute the chicken in butter, then set it aside and make the stuffing in the skillet. Add the chicken back and top with a condensed cream of chicken soup mixture and cook until the soup mixture becomes a creamy gravy. Top with some melty cheese and you're ready to get Chicken & Stuffing Skillet on the table!

Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 15 minutes or until well browned on both sides and done (to prevent sticking- make sure the skillet and butter are hot before adding the chicken). Remove the chicken from the skillet.
Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons butter and the broth in the skillet to a boil. Add the stuffing and mix lightly.
Reduce the heat to medium-low. Place the chicken on the stuffing. Stir the soup and milk in a small bowl. Pour the soup mixture over the chicken. Top with the cheese. Cover and cook until the soup mixture is hot and the cheese is melted.
Pretty good, but I always tweak it
This recipe is pretty good as-is. But I always add extra to make it better (to me, at least) and bump it up to 3.5 or 4 stars. I season my chicken (with more than just pepper) and cut it into bite-sized pieces. I use the cream of mushroom soup and I add cooked green beans, dried cranberries and fried onions (and sometimes sauteed onions). I call it "Thanksgiving Dinner in a Skillet". 🙂
My wife loves when I make this for dinner!
I brown some mushrooms, celery and onion in the fond after cooking chicken, then do the stuffing bit. It doesn't need to be the one step kind of stuffing. Any will work. Very good. Anything my husband will eat seconds of is worth trying.
chicken and stuffing skillet
super tasty and so easy to make.I chopped up the chicken thighs and though it was good next time I think I will leave them whole. I loved how cream of mushroom worked for the topping.
Made this last night with the mushroom soap variation. Delicious!
