1 (8 oz.) pkg Pepperidge Farm dressing
1 can cream of celery soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 stick butter
2 c. chicken broth

First, you need chicken, about the amount you’d get from three or four chicken breasts. You can cook them up just for the casserole, or you can use leftover chicken. You can also use canned chicken breast meat; just rinse off the liquid. See, easy. You’ll also need a can of cream of chicken soup, a can of cream of celery soup, 2 cups of chicken broth, a stick of butter, and an 8 oz. bag of Pepperidge Farm Dressing/Stuffing (any flavor you’d like).

So here’s how to make it. Grease a casserole pan and set it aside for later. Make sure to preheat your oven to 350 degrees, so it’s ready when you’ve finished assembling the casserole. Next, cut or break up your chicken into small pieces about one-inch square. In a large bowl, combine the dressing/stuffing cubes, the chicken broth, and the two cans of soup. Don’t add any water; just use the condensed soup straight from the can. Also don’t add salt because there’s enough in the soup to flavor the whole casserole. Stir these ingredients gently together without mashing up the cubes. Cut the butter into small pieces; then add the butter and the chicken to the other ingredients in the bowl. Mix thoroughly but gently. Finally, put the mixture into your prepared casserole dish, spreading it evenly.

Place your chicken casserole on the rack in the middle of your preheated oven, and bake it for 45 to 60 minutes. The top will be a nice golden brown when it’s done. Remove the hot dish carefully from the oven and let it sit on a hot pad or trivet for a few minutes. This will allow it to ‘set up’, becoming firm enough to serve and eat.

Add a salad or a side vegetable to complete the meal, and sit down to enjoy the best chicken casserole you’ve ever eaten.
