Chicken and Stuffing Casserole

Chicken and Stuffing Casserole
This is a requested recipe using a combination of leftovers.
# of servings. One . With repeats and enough to share. Itís supposed to be a Small casserole, somehow, it grows on itself. I think the best ratio is 1 part chicken/ veggie/sausage mix to bread cubes. Somehow mine usually seems to be 2 parts stuffing to one. Either way, it comes out tasting good and your kitchen smells nice while it bakes.



Leftover cooked chicken or turkey, at least 2 cups. I have a half breast, 2 thighs and some trimmings. Cut the chicken into bite size pieces. Set aside.
1-2 celery ribs, sliced
1 medium onion, chopped
1 apple peeled and diced
ĺ- 1 package bulk sausage
Packaged herb and onion style bread stuffing mix
Herbs: I put in at least a tsp of crumbled dry garden sage, itís still pretty fragrant. A little thyme, snipped parsley, pepper. There is plenty of salt already.
( Ĺ stick or so) Butter
Canned chicken broth, about 16- 18 oz, more or less as needed.
Gravy to top
Optional ingredients I have used other times. Snipped rosemary, One orange zest, plus the juice. Lemon zest, garlic, Dried cranberries

Directions:
Slice and dice. Put the veggies in a sautť pan with the sausage. Break up the sausage with a wooden spoon and stir fry. I added the apple today too, as I wanted it to soften a bit.

Put about a half package dressing mix in a large mixing bowl. Add the chicken. Toss to loosely distribute. Add the sausage, veggies and herbs.

In the sautť pan, melt about a half stick butter. t. Pour over and mix again. Then pour in chicken broth to moisten to your liking. Deglaze the pan with a splash of wine. I didnít have any today. Put in a 2 or even 3 quart casserole. Loosely, donít pack it.

Bake 350 F 20 minutes. Spoon gravy across the top and bake another 10 minutes. Or heat gravy in a separate pan and serve on top. Serve with cranberry sauce on the side. Itís like a holiday meal in one.

I must not have made this since last year. I forgot. It makes a lot. I used just a little over a half package of stuffing croutons, which is the bulk of the casserole. I used a deep dish 9 x13 pan. I did not have anyone for dinner to share. Now after several servings, I think I will soon find out how well it freezes in smaller portions. It does re-heat easily in the microwave. Right now, I have run out of gravy to top the remainder. I think it is a hearty tasting dish that reminds of a holiday meal in every bite.

Sounds good. Very similar to this Tastes Like Thanksgiving Casserole Recipe | Taste of Home but not in layers.
