Sandy’s Chicken (Baked Chicken with Stuffing and Cheese)

Baked Chicken with Stuffing Mix and Cheese

I’m not quite sure who Sandy is. I ripped this recipe out of a magazine years ago and I can’t even remember which magazine it was. Best guess is Taste of the South or Southern Lady. What I do know is this is an easy, wholesome meal. We’re talking comfort food pure and simple.

Baked Chicken with Stuffing and Cheese

You’ll see recipes like this one in just about any community or church cookbook. That’s because it has mass appeal. πŸ™‚

Only a few, simple ingredients are needed: Boneless chicken breasts, a can of Cream of Chicken soup ( Cream of Mushroom would work well too), cheese, stuffing mix and butter.

Baked Chicken with Stuffing Mix and Cheese

Since it bakes in the oven, there is very little clean-up. Double or even triple the recipe and you can serve a crowd. You can clean what little mess you make prepping it while it bakes in the oven. Greet your guests with a spic-and-span kitchen. Serve with egg noodles and green beans or broccoli to round out the meal.

I like to cut chicken breasts in half horizontally to get 2 thinner pieces. Have you noticed that the chicken breasts sold today are enormous? Even the organic ones seem to be creeping up in size. Plus they are expensive if you’re feeding a crowd. Cut them in half and you still have plenty for a single portion. Especially considering a recommended portion size for chicken is 4 ounces. Most chicken breasts are double or even triple that.

And as an added bonus, the chicken will cook faster too!

  1. i made this tonight for dinner its very good and easy to make and my family liked it , with a salad and some grand biscuits and butter and honey … its a keeper . i am always trying easy to fix meals .

  2. Sounds like the Paula Dean Recipe for Lady and Sons chicken and wine. Very similar but you use mushrooms and she uses wine. Awesome recipe though.

  3. Should the cheese slices be cut in half? Layering them will only cover 3 of the chicken cutlets and there are 6 here.

  4. This does very well in a crockpot also. There are a number of variations to this one. A
    few tweeks here and there. Look on Allrecipes and Food.com under chicken & stuffing
